Présentation de l'éditeur
An Introduction to Statistical Learning provides an accessible overview of the field of statistical learning, an essential toolset for making sense of the vast and complex data sets that have emerged in fields ranging from biology to finance to marketing to astrophysics in the past twenty years. This book presents some of the most important modeling and prediction techniques, along with relevant applications. Topics include linear regression, classification, resampling methods, shrinkage approaches, tree-based methods, support vector machines, clustering, and more. Color graphics and real-world examples are used to illustrate the methods presented. Since the goal of this textbook is to facilitate the use of these statistical learning techniques by practitioners in science, industry, and other fields, each chapter contains a tutorial on implementing the analyses and methods presented in R, an extremely popular open source statistical software platform.
Two of the authors co-wrote The Elements of Statistical Learning (Hastie, Tibshirani and Friedman, 2nd edition 2009), a popular reference book for statistics and machine learning researchers. An Introduction to Statistical Learning covers many of the same topics, but at a level accessible to a much broader audience. This book is targeted at statisticians and non-statisticians alike who wish to use cutting-edge statistical learning techniques to analyze their data. The text assumes only a previous course in linear regression and no knowledge of matrix algebra.
Biographie de l'auteur
Gareth James is a professor of statistics at University of Southern California. He has published an extensive body of methodological work in the domain of statistical learning with particular emphasis on high-dimensional and functional data. The conceptual framework for this book grew out of his MBA elective courses in this area.
Daniela Witten is an assistant professor of biostatistics at University of Washington. Her research focuses largely on high-dimensional statistical machine learning. She has contributed to the translation of statistical learning techniques to the field of genomics, through collaborations and as a member of the Institute of Medicine committee that led to the report Evolution of Translational Omics.
Trevor Hastie and Robert Tibshirani are professors of statistics at Stanford University, and are co-authors of the successful textbook Elements of Statistical Learning. Hastie and Tibshirani developed generalized additive models and wrote a popular book of that title. Hastie co-developed much of the statistical modeling software and environment in R/S-PLUS and invented principal curves and surfaces. Tibshirani proposed the lasso and is co-author of the very successful An Introduction to the Bootstrap.

ISL is neither as comprehensive nor as in-depth as ESL. It is, however, an excellent introduction to Learning due to the ability of the authors to strike a perfect balance between theory and practice. Theory is there to aim the reader as to understand the purpose and the "R Labs" at the end of each chapter are as valuable (or perhaps even more) than the end-of-chapter exercises.
ISL is an excellent choice for a two-semester advanced undergraduate (or early graduate) course, practitioners trained in classical statistics who want to enter the Learning space, and seasoned Machine Learners. It is especially helpful for getting the fundamentals down without being bogged down in heavy mathematical theory, a great way to kick-off corporate Learning units, or as an aid to help statisticians and learners communicate better.
A needed and welcome addition to the Learning literature, authored by some of the most well respected names in industry and academia. A classic in the making. Recommended unreservedly.
UPDATE (12/17/2013): Two of the authors (Hastie & Tibshirani) are offering a 10-week free online course (StatLearning: Statistical Learning) based on this book found at Stanford University's Web site (Starting Jan. 21, 2014). They also say that "As of January 5, 2014, the pdf for this book will be available for free, with the consent of the publisher, on the book website." Amazing opportunity! Enjoy!
UPDATE (04/03/2014): I took the course above and found it very helpful and insightful. You don't need the course to understand the book. If anything, the course videos are less detailed than the book. It is certainly nice, though, to see the actual authors explain the material. Also, the interviews by Efron and Friedman were a nice touch. The course will be offered again in the future.
1. Straight talk - These experts come right and say which methods work best under which circumstances. While there are many fancy algorithms covered in the book, they highlight the advantages of the simpler ones.
2. Emphasis on subjects that are not heavily addressed in most ML books - They thoroughly cover the challenges of high-dimensionality, data cleaning, and standardization. They do not limit their attention to these subjects to one chapter. They bring them up continually throughout the book.
3. Expertise - Dr. Hastie and Dr. Tibshirani are two of the thought leaders in statistical learning. You can be assured that you are learning from the best.
4. Many levels of depth - While the book does cover the basics, it is not watered down by any means. (I had the same worry as BK Reader) There is a great deal for any student of statistics; beginner or advanced.
5. R code - You are given enough code and examples to gain confidence in your ability to independently perform excellent analysis and modeling.
6. The concepts are just plain exciting! - You will feel an excitement as you discover and re-discover the algorithms they present.
The book is a standard work along with Elements of Statistical Learning and Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning (the Bayesian approach). If you enjoy the book, you may also want to consider Applied Predictive Modeling. It has the same style and approach.
If you need a practical guide to implementing statistical learning in R, this is an excellent choice. Very understandable and accessible.
I loved the class and loved the book. I thought the applications with R made it far more accessible and made it easier to learn. While I totally love the theoretical underpinnings, sometimes they aren't the best to learn right away and applying the ideas make it easier to grasp.
Rob Tibs & Trevor Hastie also had an online course offered through Stanford's EdX that ran the same time I was taking the course. It had videos of Trevor and Rob explaining the concepts in the order they were presented in the book. The course also included exercises and quizzes. The best part of the online course was that Rob & Trevor were absolutely hilarious. I loved their commentary and their personalities clashed in the most humorous way possible; it is very easy to see that they love what they do and love each other's company.
I'd totally recommend this book. Keep an eye out for the next offering on Stanford's online course web page; it makes it a lot more enjoyable.
