Dear M. Noel:

       You may know that there is a list of books on the R web site 
(www.r-project.org -> "books": www.r-project.org/doc/bib/R-books.html).  
I'm not sure what you should do to get this book listed there.  If no 
one else suggests what to do, you might wish to write to Frau Palege in 
the Institut für Statistik und Mathematik, Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien, 
evelyn.palige at wu.ac.at.  If she does not handle this, she might be able 
to find someone who does.

       Best Wishes,
