What are the best books about data science? by @wzchen

Answer by William Chen:

I'm compiling a bunch of free data science books as a public resource. Here's all the books I have right now:

All of these books have (authorized) free digital versions, or are pay what you want (PWYW) with $0 minimum.

Programming for Data Science

- R Programming for Data Science (PWYW)
- Think Python by Allen Downey (free)
More resources: How do I learn Python?, R (programming language): How do I learn R?

Statistics and Bayesian Data Analysis

- Statistical Inference for Data Science (PWYW)
- Think Stats by Allen Downey (free)
- Think Bayes by Allen Downey (free)
- Probabilistic Programming and Bayesian Methods for Hackers (free)
More resources: How do I learn Bayesian inference as a beginner?

Experimental Design and Analysis (aka A/B Testing)More resources: How do I learn experimental design?

Statistical Machine LearningMore resources: How do I learn machine learning?

The Data Science Process

Data Visualization

- Interactive Data Visualization for the Web (free online)
- d3 Tutorials (many free)

Interviews with Data Scientists

Despite the similar name, these two books are not officially affiliated, although some of the authors know each other well! These books contains interviews of data scientists, and give some good insight into their careers, their stories, and what they do!
