*Introducing Monte Carlo Methods with R***“, by William Bolstad, that seems to mostly cover the same ground as us (with some connections with**

*“Understanding Computational Bayesian Statistics**for prior modelling in regression and logistic models). Although R seems to be less proeminently advocated than in our Use R! volume, I am quite curious to see what exactly is in this book and how much of a competitor it is! (Given that it is the same length as ours (about 315 pages), I am however a bit surprised at the high $110’s asked for this book.)*
