I've read a few comments about the author's slow approach in the first part of the book. I have to respectfully disagree. I found the first part of the book excellent and when I spent time entering and debugging the code assignments I truly grasped neural networks for the first time.

I really appreciate the use of code without dependencies to get the concepts across. I've been slowly amassing the notebooks as I work through each example. I use python 3 and am not largely familiar with python 2. I'm attributing much of the debugging to version changes and MEAP.

I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for more chapters and fingers crossed the Dec 2017 publish date is still on track.

Thanks Andrew for a wonderful look at the nuance of neural networks.
