Reviewed in Canada 🇨🇦 on February 1, 2022
This book is quite fantastic for an introductory level. I have a specialised training in mathematics and this books puts me up to date on several topics and algorithms without having to deal much time in the mathematical technicalities (for that, there are specialised treatises on each subject). The R code is quite good and although I think some of their advice is not appropriate (e.g. the attach function is in R only for legacy purposes but shouldn't be used since it overrides other functions, including base, aka default, functions), it is workable and so it's a great investment. The book is introductory focusing mostly on intuition and how to do, little time is spent in mathematical formalities, so that's a plus. I think there is a NEWER edition than the one I reviewed but otherwise I suspect the newer edition will be just better. Recommended.
