I know he was working on the revisions (using knitr) late last year, but I have no idea about the current status.</p>
<p>@Stelios Sfakianakis You are right that the Github repo is basically empty. I hope to make it a usable template, but I do not think the complete source document of my book will be available. I can talk to the publisher, though.</p>Mitch commented on 'Two forthcoming R books'tag:typepad.com,2003:6a010534b1db25970b019103088a0b970c2013-06-06T19:43:05Z2013-06-07T20:08:26ZMitchAnyone know the status of Frank Harrell's revisions to "Regression Modeling Strategies?"<p>Anyone know the status of Frank Harrell's revisions to "Regression Modeling Strategies?"</p>Richie Cotton commented on 'Two forthcoming R books'tag:typepad.com,2003:6a010534b1db25970b01901cccddb5970b2013-05-31T12:08:52Z2013-06-07T20:08:26ZRichie Cottonhttp://4dpiecharts.comI have a book on R on its way as well.

<p>This is a little further out, but there is another one from Manning that's on the horizon: <b>Practical Data Science with R</b>, by Nina Zumel and John Mount. It's currently available in the Early Access Program, so the chapters are available as they're written and one can interact with the authors in the forums. </p>
