We’re not even halfway through with January, but the new year’s already rung in a new book with lots of Stan content:
- Richard McElreath (2016) Statistical Rethinking: A Bayesian Course with Examples in R and Stan. Chapman & Hall/CRC Press.
This one got a thumbs up from the Stan team members who’ve read it, and Rasmus Bååth has called it “a pedagogical masterpiece.”
The book’s web site has two sample chapters, video tutorials, and the code.
The book is based on McElreath’s R package rethinking
, which is available from GitHub with a nice README on the landing page.
If the cover looks familiar, that’s because it’s in the same series as Gelman et al.’s Bayesian Data Analysis.
