Elements of Statistical Learning (Online)

In case you had not already heard, Trevor Hastie, Robert Tibshirani, and Jerome Friedman have put a PDF copy of the second edition of their excellent text Elements of Statistical Learning on the book's website. I am sure many of you already own it, but a searchable version for the laptop is incredibly useful. The second edition has a lot of new content, including completely new chapters on Random Forests, Ensemble Learning, Undirected Graphical Models, and High-Dimensional Problems.

While a copy on your computer is very handy, a desk copy of this book is essential if you are interested in machine learning or data mining. The book is also a sight to behold. You can buy a copy at Amazon or Springer.
