These are some of the resources to which I wish I had been introduced when I was younger.

### Statistics

Turns out most of science is coding and statistics.Information Theory, Inference, and Learning Algorithms

The first book I ever read that actually made statistics interesting

Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning

Review of state of the art techniques in machine learning

Bayesian Data Analysis

Theoretical statistics is just the theory of applied statistics

### Communication

Your work won't mean much if you can't share it with others.Trees, maps, and theorems

More signal, less noise

Confessions of a Public Speaker

You owe your audience a good talk

Garr Reynolds

Don't undercut your work with terrible slides

Junk Charts

Shaming bad plots for the good of society

### Geometry

This one may be limited to the physicists; physics makes a whole lot more sense when you actual understand the language in which most of it is written.Gauge Fields, Knots and Gravity

Don't be scared by the title, the pedagogy here is amazing

Classical Dynamics

Kind of like Goldstein for those who actually want to understand from where the equations come
