I am the first to accept that I have a biased opinion about this book, because it has sentimental value. It represents difficult times, dealing with a new language, culture and, on top of that, animal breeding.

At the same time, it opened doors to a whole world of ideas. This is much more than I can say of most books. PS I have commented on a few more books in these posts.

This book covers a lot of materials that will contribute to a solid understanding of matrix algebra. I would, by all means, recommend this book, but would still like to point out some weaknesses: Unattractive page layout. Page after page of dull looks. Need more visuals; I don't mean colorful graphics but black-and-white diagrams and geometric interpretations.

From time to time, I felt like the author would give examples only on easy-to-understand topics, but avoid giving examples on difficult-to-understand ones.

That didn't make sense to me. Proofs should be more clearly presented.

It seems like the author is always in a hurry to just get the job done. I guess it was designed for uninterested readers to simply skip the proofs without making them feel they have skipped over a lot of materials. However, for an interested reader like me, who isn't particularly strong in proofs, it was a disfavor. Illustration topics could be more diverse. For instance, there are too many illustrations dealing with genetics.

I would appreciate more everyday examples, like the taxi one. Again, I would strongly recommend this book, despite what I think are its weaknesses. Hardcover Verified Purchase. I agree with all of the positive reviews I have seen before. They partly influenced my decision to buy the book.

I already had a good background in linear algerbra and statistics but was looking for something that did a clear job of connecting the two. I really wish I had this book when I was in grad school. The book has a nice balance between rigorous proof and conceptual discussion.

The examples and exercises at the end of the chapters are very engauging and instructive. The book also does a nice job early on of anticipating matrix computations that will be useful later in the book and for statistical computations in general.

My only critique is that there are no hints or answers keys for the problems but this is very minor. The book is so well laid out that the text and exercises fit together very tightly.

I highly recommend this book and will be going back to it often. I'm methodically working through ALL the example problems in this textbook with the goal of firming up my understanding of matrix algebra and -ultimately- statistics. Currently on chapter 3 but I've been impressed thus far with the clarity of explanations and organization of the material.

As a statistician myself, I'm certain this will be a valuable reference and resource for me in my work. I do not think the author has succeeded in this selfproclaimed goal. In some chapters - which I consider core chapters - results are simply offered as theorems and then proved without any comment on the significance of the result. Theres a lack of a unified approach, where new concepts are linked to old ones whenever possible, and the notation is at times inconsistent both within and across chapters.

Simple matters are presented in a complicated fashion perhaps to save space. The chapters on statistical application - particularly regression - did not impress me since I have seen appendices in stat books treat the matrix algebra with more insight rather than the dry computational fashion which seems to be the drive of this book.

Considering the amount of books available on linear algebra I find this book way too expensive and too dense to be worth the time.

To me this was not the hoped for bridge from linear algebra to a deepened understanding of the math behind in my case regression.
