Ultralearning: This book deserves not more than 30 mins of anyone's time. Repetitive to the core. The first few pages are enough.
This is actually a great book. And I am going to read it once again after I get over my current Python book.
A very good book to solve if you have some background in computer science. But not the right time for me to have read this cover to cover.
#EV (1/n) What fraction will be India's contribution to the global electric vehicle market. Any guesses?
We are a part of the top dark grey region consisting of 150 countries. Yes we are the largest in that perhaps.
