Practical Data Science with R now in Chinese Translation!

Our publisher, Manning, has kindly sent us complimentary copies of the new Simplified Chinese translation of Practical Data Science with R.

We can’t read it, of course, but it’s cool (and a bit intimidating) to see what our work looks like in another language and character set. Here are a couple of peeks inside, just for fun.

I wonder if Manning is planning any other translated editions? I’ll keep you posted.

I’ve just finished reviewing the illustrations for chapters 8-10 of the book; chapters 1-4 have gone through layout and chapters 5-7 will be sent to layout on Monday.

The rest of the chapters are with various editors and proofreaders, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Cross your fingers that we’ll get this out real soon!
