Max The Cat by Nana Grey-Johnson


Original Title: Max The Cat

In Max the Cat, Max, the son of the district officer, returns to his provincial hometown after qualifying as a teacher. However, Max returns under a cloud. His father is unhappy with reports of his son’s radical political activities at college. This sets the tone of a one-sided relationship: While the son loves his father and holds him in highest regard, the ambitious old politician plots for Max’s removal by any means, fair or foul. The young man’s crusade against official corruption does not sit well with some of the skeletons that his father would rather keep hidden to maintain his privilege and protect his friends. Between these two men there is a woman – a loving stepmother and a faithful wife – who tries to reconcile her stepson and her husband. With quiet faith and patience, she lives with the great irony in their differences arising out of the son’s firm belief in the moral principles his father taught him, while her husband’s own faith in his early teachings has been eroded by complacency and compromise after years in office. Father and son are set on a warpath. Behind the scenes in this struggle, the spirits of their ancestors are at work. The interplay is quite thrilling, as African folklore, religion and contemporary politics mix dramatically in this book to see if good triumphs over evil.

Applied Predictive Modeling by Max Kuhn


Original Title: Applied Predictive Modeling

Applied Predictive Modeling covers the overall predictive modeling process, beginning with the crucial steps of data preprocessing, data splitting and foundations of model tuning. The text then provides intuitive explanations of numerous common and modern regression and classification techniques, always with an emphasis on illustrating and solving real data problems. The text illustrates all parts of the modeling process through many hands-on, real-life examples, and every chapter contains extensive R code for each step of the process. This multi-purpose text can be used as an introduction to predictive models and the overall modeling process, a practitioner’s reference handbook, or as a text for advanced undergraduate or graduate level predictive modeling courses. To that end, each chapter contains problem sets to help solidify the covered concepts and uses data available in the book’s R package. This text is intended for a broad audience as both an introduction to predictive models as well as a guide to applying them. Non-mathematical readers will appreciate the intuitive explanations of the techniques while an emphasis on problem-solving with real data across a wide variety of applications will aid practitioners who wish to extend their expertise. Readers should have knowledge of basic statistical ideas, such as correlation and linear regression analysis. While the text is biased against complex equations, a mathematical background is needed for advanced topics.
