Add more columns when you are doing group by in the first parentheses..

First we should understand why it's giving this result..

It's similar to Sql,we are applying an aggregate function on a grouped by value, That's why it's giving only one value,

If you want to have further information, Add the columns name in the first parentheses in a $list$

It will be something like this

df.groupby([Col1,Col2...,Coln])(another col).sum().sort_values().tail()

Edit -1

Recently enough, I came across that we can cascade group by together by playing smart and using the .join(second group by(). aggregate ())

Here's the working example (ignore the column names...it's relevant to my dataset)

df.groupby('Year_of_Release')[['Global_Sales']].sum().join( df.groupby('Year_of_Release')[['Name']].count())
