Second Edition of "Processamento e Analise de Dados Financeiros e Econômicos com o R"

It is with great pleasure that I announce the second edition of the portuguese version of my book, Processing and Analyzing Financial Data with R. This edition updates the material significantly. The portuguese version is now not only in par with the international version of the book, but much more! Here are the main changes: The structure of chapters changed towards the stages of a research, from obtaining the raw data, cleaning it, manipulating it and, finally, reporting tables and figures.

My Book about using R in Finance

I am very please to announce that my book,Processing and Analyzing Financial Data with R, is finally out! This book is an english version of my previous title in portuguese. This is a long term project that I plan to keep on working over the years. You can find it in Amazon. Following great titles about R, I decided to also publish an online version with full content here. More details about the book, including table of contents, is availabe in its webpage.

Writing a R book and self-publishing it in Amazon

Many people, including my university colleagues and friends, have asked me about the process of writing a book and self publishing it in Amazon. You can find the details about the book here and here. Given so much interest, I’m going to report the whole process in this post. First, motivation. Why did I write a book? I am a university professor. Writing is a major part of my work and I really enjoy it.
