This book introduces the numpy library by examples (which the author refers as recipes :). It is written with a simple language and it covers a wide range of topics, from the istallation of numpy to the combination with Cython. My impression of the book was good and, in particular, I liked the structure of the book. Every chapter face a series of problem related to the a specific topic through examples. Each example comes with an introduction to the problem that will be solved, the code commented line by line and a short recap of the techniques applied to solve the problem. Most of the examples are about practical problems and the code is made to be adapted in your own projects. This book could be a good starting point for who want to begin with numpy using a gentle approach. It can be used also as a manual which can help you in the development of small parts of more complex projects.
