Dear R and S list members:

I've just published a book entitled An R and S-PLUS Companion to Applied 
Regression. The book introduces R and S-PLUS in the context of linear and 
generalized-linear models, and assumes familiarity with -- or a 
simultaneous course or text on -- these topics. I thought that the book 
might be of interest to the members of these lists or to their students.

More information is available on the web site for the book 
<http://www.socsci.mcmaster.ca/jfox/Books/Companion/>, where you will also 
find a variety of supporting materials, including the preface and table of 
contents of the book; scripts for the examples; and nine appendices briefly 
covering related topics such as nonlinear regression, nonparametric 
regression, Cox regression for survival data, and mixed-effects models.

The book is published by Sage Publications; information about ordering it 
may be found on the Sage web site, at 

Thanks for your attention (and apologies for the double-posting),
