@becausealice2 thanks anyways :)
@erictleung thanks for the english translation :). Do you know of any good online reading group reading this book? Maybe that will be a better place to keep asking the doubts that come up?

@srniranjan I don't know of any reading groups. A quick Google search shows various initiatives, but they aren't active anymore. Feel free to share your progress if you're continuing to read it! I've tried for years to read it and making time to casually read it now.

@srniranjan you may find it easier to read the Introduction to Statistical Learning book by some of the same authors of the EoSL book. It has less mathy language, R code to implement the algorithms, and also free online.

@srniranjan I haven't read this yet, but this has gotten a lot of press on Twitter https://jeremykun.com/2018/12/01/a-programmers-introduction-to-mathematics/ May prove useful.
