I've read the transformer and attention related chapters from Bishop. Certainly, the most accessible yet thorough explanation of the architectures I've seen around.

Agreed. It is so well explained. Plus the code snippets are a huge help.

I'm interested in Bennett for sure. Did you enjoy it? was it pretty easy to get through? I have the bandwidth for a book like that (especially an audiobook).

I recall another tennis analogy book by Charles Ellis, on personal finance and investing. I think it's called "Winning the Loser's Game", and it's all about how you have to approach investing like you're an amateur- just try to return the ball! Pro tennis is a winner's game, but not amateur tennis.

Bennet's book is super interesting. I really enjoyed it and found it relatively easy to get through. There were sections in the book that I was already familiar with, so I skipped them, especially the early sections, but things start to get really interesting once Bennet starts talking about AI and connecting the dots. Although I read it in paperback, I am sure the audio version will be just as easy to follow along.

Thanks for recommending the investment advice book. I am always up for some good advice on that, especially given that I suck at personal finance πŸ˜›.
