My R Book On Portfolio Analytics Has Been Published

Quantitative Investment Portfolio Analytics In R: An Introduction To R For Modeling Portfolio Risk and Return rolled off the presses earlier today for the first time. The book is currently available as a softback title. Stay tuned for details on an upcoming Kindle version. Meantime, after nearly four years of writing in my “spare” time, I’m thrilled (and relieved) to announce that my third book has arrived. You can find the table of contents here. In the days ahead I’ll publish a chapter excerpt on CapitalSpectator.com, including code. Stay tuned.

Meantime, courtesy of the book’s release, your editor is now rolling in free time for evenings and weekends for the foreseeable future. Just in time for the summer!
