Looks interesting, but why so expensive? I mean, really, $70 for a book which probably is a collection of articles and posts that are available on the internet and probably largely builds on packages like chain ladder and actuar, which are also provided free of charge? I say ‘probably’ because there is not even a preview or toc on Amazon. • I contributed the chapter on IBNR and Claims Reserving and therefore had the privilege to see draft versions of the book. I think, it will be great reference book on the various aspects of actuarial science – and getting the job done with R. It has contributions not only from well known academics, but practitioners as well. And it is only about$0.10 per page. The draft chapter on Bayesian Philosophy has served me well already. Can’t wait to see the printed version.
