Book Review: Matplotlib for Python Developers

Matplotlib for Python Developers by Sandro Tosi is the latest in a
series of concise project-specific manuals from Packt. It covers
the matplotlib library for creating charts and graphs.

My review for the impatient reader:

Why I picked it up: I thought it might help with a project at work.

Why I finished it: I wanted to see what features matplotlib had the could be useful, and how to integrate it with web frameworks.

I’d give it to: Anyone wishing to create custom charts and graphs, especially programmatically.
