Chapter 2 Soft Skills for Data Scientists

We want to start the book with soft skills for data scientists. There are many university courses, online self-learning modules, and excellent books that teach technical skills. However, there are much fewer resources discussing the soft skills for data scientists in detail. However, soft skills are essential for data scientists to succeed in their career, especially in the early stage. This chapter also introduces the project cycle and some common pitfalls of data science projects in real life.
