This book is really excellent, thank you. However, from about page 82 (Classification​ ​with​ ​Support​ ​Vector​ ​Machines), some of the equations and diagrams appear to have been missed out in production of the PDF. Can you check it, please? Thanks.

I’ve just given my email address to you in order to send me a link for downloading a free ebook about Machine Learning and authorized you to send me information about your products. I’ve received the link but I can’t download the ebook because it appears again the same request about my data. Please send me a valid link or cancel my authorization. I don’t think this is fair play if this is only a mean to get my data. If I’m wrong just give me a good explanation.
