There hasn't been any new content to this book in about 6 months. Can we get a refund back at this point or get credit to get another MEAP book. By the time this book is done deep learning will no longer be relevant anymore.

If you'd like a refund, you can simply e-mail Manning support and they'll issue a refund for you.

By the way, the book has been finished according to the author: https://twitter.com/iamtrask/status/1032908687017426944

You can also read a letter from the author when you open the landing page: https://www.manning.com/books/grokking-deep-learning (Click on author's letter on completing manuscript). My guess is Manning is doing some editing and checks before all the new chapters are added. Excited that its finally over!

Thanks for the update, wish the author could have updated us. I guess I will have to wait it out then and wait for the final product. Sort of a half meap i guess.

Unfortunately the chapter where the author teaches how to build neural networks that can learn how to play videogames has been removed.

The chapter I waited the most

The chapter "we" waited the most. People are disappointed.

I'm so sad to see this from the books description:
And at the end, you'll even build an A.I. that will learn to defeat you in a classic Atari game.

Because I plan to purchase Grokking Deep Reinforcement Learning,
will the description for the other MEAP books can be trusted?
