Thanks, Bob.

"R" is an remarkable platform for data analysis and visualization. I'm looking forward to seeing people's questions and participating in the discussion.

Welcome, Rob! I got your book via MEAP over a year ago and have been enjoying reading it as and when new chapters came out. Can't wait for the final version!

All,
R is my kind of language. I learned it through the 10" screen on my Acer Aspire. I'd love to have a book on it. I did get have my hands on a book through interlibrary loan. The output graphic potential is far beyond what I'll ever be able to learn. I hope this doesn't exclude me from eligibility for winning the book...
