Want a free copy of R Cookbook by Paul Teetor? You’re in luck, because I have four copies to give away, generously provided by O’Reilly. In case you’re unfamiliar, here’s my review for some background. Bottom line: It’s a fine addition to the O’Reilly series of cookbooks.

You know the drill. Simply leave a comment on this post by Sunday, March 8 at 11pm PST. This time around, let’s go with… your favorite number. Yeah, tell me what your favorite number is. Then I’ll choose four winners at random on Monday.
