This is pretty gentle and easy introduction for the first few chapters, bag or words, tokenisation, dimension reduction and word vectors, before getting into the the details of recurrent networks and LSTM based encoders-decoder networks. I could follow the first two thirds of the book, some of the narrative was a little repetitive in the early chapters. There are some coding errata, dues to the pace of change in supporting libraries.
But it all gets a bit hairy around chapt10, with LSTM encoders-decoders. This is demanding stuff. The explanation is as good or better than other books (e.g. Chollets excellent deep learning book). But its still a little beyond my little brain. So it requires a deeper intellectual investment for the last b150 pages, and some serious investment in GPU and or cloud based Tensorflow processing capability.
Nothing is for free, and I fear that the advancement of deep NLP will remain within the big players like Google and Facebook if we are not careful.
This is my second Manning textbook (after Deep Learning with Python by Francois Chollet), and I definitely love this publishing house: textbooks written in conversational English (so it's great to read) with a reasonable depth and precision in explanations. Another bonus is that I absolutely love the covers artworks!
