Maria Callas was almost as well-known for her personal life - her jet-setting, her staggering weight loss, her tigress-like temperament, her affair with Aristotle Onassis (he threw her over for Jacquelin1000e Kennedy) - as she was for her singing. Of Greek parentage, the New York - born, internationally famous Callas was the most influential soprano of the 20th century, reviving a school of singing - bel canto - that had been shunted aside, if not forgotten, for 75 years. Unlike most of her generation of sopranos, she was a superb actress both vocally and physically: her voice encompassed many colors and she embodied each character she portrayed. After seeing or hearing her in a role, it was said, it was difficult to imagine another singer attempting it, so fierce was her individual stamp. Her status went beyond cult- her triumphs and failures appeared on the front page of newspapers all over the world. This profusely illustrated book covers Callas' life and career without dwelling on unimportant details- the facts are all here, but it is primarily a musical biography. The final third of the book is devoted to an analysis of the tracks on the two CDs that accompany the text - in short, they describe what made Callas unique, what made Callas Callas. Her voice was controversial- there were those who had negative visceral reactions to it, finding it ugly and weird. Millions of others worshiped it - and her. Listening to her now, more than 30 years after her early death at 54, there is no real argument: listen for yourselves to "La Divina" ('the divine one'), as the Italians dubbed her, and be amazed.

    It's a well written book and I think is very good for getting a highlevel view of data science and ML. Although it implements things from scratch, it doesn't go super deep into the mathematical concepts behind them or anything. But it lets you know what you can do.

      Aeson had to remain cold and aloof for most of Qualify and Compete because as the Imperial Crown Prince he had the duty to marry someone his father approved of, and so for the longest time he could not allow himself to feel, and tried repressing it. But he "went rogue" in the end when he could no longer deny his love to himself and to Gwen.

    WellЙI've loved all the covers of Raine Benaraes and SPI but I'm just not feeling this one. This is not how I've imagined Tam, and this cover makes him look much too young and I would have preferred actual skin tones. I understand about attracting new readers but I would have preferred more reality. I have another series I love and on every dang cover the main characters tatoos are different! But it is a beautiful cover (and I agree, with the clothing and the features I would have thought more Phaelan than Tam).
