    Overall very positive – what would be helpful is a section in the introductory chapter on how to prepare one’s own data set prior to being able to execute some of the code within the book. Just using an archived example data set doesn’t help here.

    BUYER BEWARE !!!
    I purchased this as a download on June 17, 2023. The download link did not work, and my PayPal account has been debited. I have had no response to my 3 emails requesting a new link. It is now July 16, and I’m beginning to wonder if this guy, Alboukadel Kassambara even exists. I can’t recommend buying from Datanovia.

    Love all of Kassambara’s books. So well written and clear. I have learned so much from this author. It’s best to get the books from the Datanovia website though. My experience with Amazon is sometimes the books have issues with formatting. But, I have never had an issue with the pdf versions that you get on the Datanovia website.
