I’m clearing out some books. You can buy them! They are all good ones, it’s just that I don’t need to have hard copies filling up my (already bulging) shelves.

They are all cheaper than Amazon, although shipping beyond the EU is more expensive as I don’t have my own logistics empire. Logistic regression yes, logistics empire no. Here’s a photo of the river Itchen instead:

Smaller than the Amazon, but no piranhas.

They are all in very good condition. I don’t know what term book sellers would use, but they are nearly new with one exception.

Whoever buys one first (the earliest transaction to have all the cost + p&p received by me or BayesCamp or WorldPay) gets a free book: Information Is Beautiful by David McCandless!

You can get them by emailing me at [email protected] and I’ll arrange a bank transfer or credit card transaction. Within the EU, the credit card transactions would be via BayesCamp and hence have 20% VAT added. Outside the UK, credit card is probably much simpler for you than bank transfers and you might have to pay bank fees for the transfer. Options, options… Basically in the UK you probably want bank transfer, in the EU it’s not so clear and rest-of-world probably want credit card.
