Practical Data Science in R: March Publication Date!


We’ve finished proofing/editing the last chapter of the book!

We still have to finish editing the appendices and some of the front matter, but we’re close. Manning has announced that the book will be released in March.

So excited….

Practical Data Science with R – Making progress…

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!

Big News! Practical Data Science with R is content complete!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted here, but I have good news: the last appendix has gone to the editors. The book is now content complete. What a relief!

We are hoping to release the book late in the first quarter of next year. In the meantime, you can still get early drafts of our chapters through Manning’s Early Access program, if you haven’t yet. The link is here.

We look forward to sharing the final version of the book with you next year.
