BDA3 is coming soon, and it’s bigger and badder than ever. It’s got Gaussian processes and weakly informative priors and HMC and VB and EP and Stan. It’s got all-new material on WAIC and several new chapters on nonparametrics. It’s got the birthday data!

I’ll have some future posts with more information, but for now I’d just like to thank Hal Stern for helping to keep this project going, John Carlin for providing the stone that got this soup started, Don Rubin for intellectual inspiration, David Dunson for getting us moving on nonparametric Bayes, and Aki Vehtari for closing, getting the job done.

Thanks also to the Front Row All-Stars and Alex, Alex, and Vince for helping me think a lot of this through.

P.S. You can order the book here and there’s an ASA member 20% discount code AJL01, giving a price of $55.96. Standard shipping is free from that website and orders will be fulfilled as soon as the stock is in the warehouse, i.e. before Amazon even has copies.
