These books have been published and re-published in the last 10 year. Most of them are encyclopedias, yet they are extremely useful resources for the data science beginner or expert. Just like top restaurants, they come with a steep price. I did not include two encyclopedias (each with 10+ volumes) that sell for over $5,000 because I felt they were truly overpriced. Also, I have just published a new book, entitled Applied Stochastic Processes (that one is free.)

Hello. Could you please let me know what are the "two encyclopedias (each with 10+ volumes) that sell for over $5,000" that you were referred to? Thank you.
