An Introduction to Statistical Learning with Applications in Python
It’s a well known machine learning book. I’ve read through it and done the exercises in R.
https://github.com/melling/ISLR
There’s an edX course from the authors:
https://www.edx.org/course/statisticallearning

Introduction to statistical learning, 2nd edition
Looks like a few new chapters. e.g Deep Learning
I own the first edition. Made it through the entire book during the pandemic with a study partner.
There are other resources:

R Markdown: The Definitive Guide
I recently discovered R Markdown. Started doing the ISLR examples with it.

I’m up to Chapter 6 in ISLR

Would Elements of Statistical Learning be my next book? I’ve seen the Bishop book highly recommended too.
