I was looking for some books on Statistical Learning for a new course that I am preparing, and I came across a very interesting book titled “The Elements of Statistical Learning Data Mining, Inference, and Prediction” by Trevor Hastie, Robert Tibshirani, and Jerome Friedman. This book can be downloaded for free. I enjoyed reading this book since it is very well written and contains several examples. Additionally, data and R scripts used in the book are available for download in the book website.
