How To

If you’re going to explore this dataset, I recommend using the awesome csvkit.


It will allow you to do stuff like:

  • see the headers: csvcut -n books.csv
  • and the see just the columns you want: csvcut -c 13,4 books.csv
  • look at some stats: csvcut -c languages,size,formats books.csv | csvstat
  • find the largest pdfs in the collection: csvcut -c title_sort,formats,size books.csv | csvgrep -c formats -m pdf | csvsort -c size -r | head
  • csvjson books.csv | jq | whatever
  • You can also perform actual SQL queries on it, and convert the data between csv and sqlite database:
