Ben, your plug is welcome. There is a hole to be filled in this area, and I'm looking forward to checking your plug for shape and size!

A question or two: I notice that one can get the whole book in one shot from

rather than piece by piece from the individual chapter links (though the revision status may differ). But must one also get the Exercises, R code, Data and Scripts separately?

And/or can one use wget for it all?

Thanks, Ben, and best wishes for its future! Ted.
