Machine Learning by Peter Flach covers practical examples of machine learning in action.
The Art and Science of Algorithms that Make Sense of Data
You learn about statistical models that can be generated, analyzed, and predicted with machine learning techniques. Peter includes an overview of a custom spam filter explaining how this works and why it has advanced so much in recent years. The book is full of graphs, charts, and diagrams to help explain each point.
Machine learning is a vast subject and Peter does a great job of breaking down the main components through example. This book goes into great detail about Scikit-learn and how to apply it to data analysis. Definitely a technical book but not made just for Python experts. Yet another Python-based learning book, although this one is a bit shorter and much more detailed with examples.
Data Science from Scratch covers an intro to Python before even getting to the code. Writing style is clear and precise. The level of depth is not as great as Python Machine Learning, although truthfully both books will have you delving deep into machine learning so neither one is a bad choice. My favorite aspect of this book is the coding style.

Tariq Rashid explains neural networks as a fundamental component of machine learning and his book is the best way to dive into it. Make Your Own Neural Network is brilliant and affordable. But you do need some experience with Python to feel comfortable going through everything. You do not need to be an expert to get into this book. However you do need ambition and drive to push through the tough parts. This covers more generic informational learning that takes in related info from other resources in a dataset. But this book also covers more complex probability-based machine learning too.
A lay-person’s guide to the algorithm jungle
It teaches through example and little mini tutorials that force you to consider different methods of teaching through data. You will definitely need a solid background in programming and mathematics to pick up this book. Each chapter covers an ever-advancing topic on probability and machine learning based on patterns in datasets. Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning is the definitive guide to mastering pattern recognition.
It takes you from a general intro through live examples using very basic ideas to get the point across. There is no talking down to any reader with this writing style. The authors tend to repeat themselves just to drive a point home. So while this is a tough subject, this book is also the best resource to really drill these concepts into your brain.
