This book tries to introduce you to a wide range of topics from ipython, numpy, scipy, matplotlib over pandas to cython etc. It's not just on ipython as the title might suggest and it's mainly targeted at the beginner who was solid Python knowledge though. It is only able to scratch the surface of the discussed packages and I would have preferred an in depth look at just some of these. A good chunk of the book is on ipython and I learned a few good tricks from that section. However overall, if you've ever played around with any of the other libraries for longer than 15 minutes, you probably already know everything that you will learn from this book.
