Free copy of book by Hastie, Tibshirani, and Friedman

Hastie and Tibshirani mentioned in their course in Krems am Donau (Austria) that the last edition of their book "The Elements of Statistical Learning: Data Mining, Inference, and Prediction" will be freely available. It is true! You can fetch a free copy from Hastie's webpage (8.2 MB).

Thanks for letting us know. I'd thought about getting a copy of that book.

Hi Gregor, thanks for that hint. Unfortunately, I missed that course. (I am very happy about your blog -- I can catch a lot of material by the way.)

Hi Dörte!

The course was nice, though very intense. I think I have quite some knowledge (at least at the level of understanding stuff from birds-eye view), but often had quite a hard time to follow the presentation of methods I have never heard about. However, I have to say that they really explain things in a nice and intuitive way - at least for the topics they alloted enough time. The course lasted two days, but I think it should last more. Anyway, we have the book now and we can study by ourselves ;)
