If you’ve been considering buying Python Text Processing with NLTK 2.0 Cookbook, but haven’t yet, below are a couple reviews that may help convince you how awesome it is
Jaganadh says in his review of Python Text Processing with NLTK Cookbook at Jaggu’s World:
The eight chapter a revolutionary one which deals with Distributed data processing and handling large scale data with NLTK. (…) This chapter will be really helpful for industry people who is looking for to adopt NLTK in to NLP projects.
I give 9 out of 10 for the book. Natural Language Processing students, teachers, professional hurry and bag a copy of this book.
Sum-Wai says in his review of Python Text Processing with NLTK Cookbook at Tips Tank:
I like it where in each recipe, the author provides extra knowledge on the particular problem, like how a problem can be enhance and solve in another way, or what we need to do if the problem on hand changed, and some extra technical tips, which is very nice and useful.
If you’re thinking about the O’Reilly’s NLTK book – Natural Language Processing with Python, IMHO this book and the O’Reilly NLTK book complements each other. The O’Reilly NLTK book focuses more on getting you to know NLP and the features and usage of NLTK , while Python Text Processing with NLTK teaches us how we would implement NLP/NLTK with tools like MongoDB into solving real world problems.
And Neil Kodner, @neilkod, says:
I’m loving python text processing with nltk cookbook by @japerk, its an excellent companion to the O’Reilly NLTK book
Christmas is coming up, and who doesn’t think about python text processing during the holidays?
