    For those of you interested in some of the books that John recommended, there just happens to be a very timely one-day sale on R books by O'reilly. (For Pirate's Day. A sale on R books. Get it? Get it? )

    50% off R ebooks. Use discount code: DEAL.

    The books John mentioned were: "Reproducible Research with R and RStudio", "Applied predictive modeling", "Art of R", "R in Action", and of course, "Practical Data Science in R." (Not all of these are available through O'Reilly. though.)
