Some more Practical Data Science with R news.

Practical Data Science with R is the book we wish we had when we started in data science. Practical Data Science with R, Second Edition is the revision of that book with the packages we wish had been available at that time (in particular vtreat, cdata, and wrapr). A second edition also lets us also correct some omissions, such as not demonstrating data.table.

For your part: please help us get the word out about this book. Practical Data Science with R, Second Edition, R in Action, Second Edition, and Think Like a Data Scientist are Manning’s August 20th 2018 “Deal of the Day” (use code dotd082018au at https://www.manning.com/dotd).

For our part we are busy revising chapters and setting up a new Github repository for examples and code and other reader resources.
