Free Book: Elements of Statistical Learning

The Elements of Statistical Learning: Data Mining, Inference, and Prediction by Trevor Hastie, Robert Tibshirani, and Jerome Friedman, one of the best books on data mining and machine learning, is now available free in PDF format.

Download it here or view it online here.


  1. I'm reading this now (I checked it out from the library). I strongly urge people to read it; there's a lot of stuff I didn't see in graduate stat/biostat, which has made me more aware of the holes in my knowledge.

  2. I've passed it on to a couple of people; one was reluctant until she started to read it, and now she's very glad!

  3. Excellent! This book helped a lot when I started. I still reference it here and there. Be sure to check out one of the newer posts for more resources on machine and statistical learning in R.
