I finally got to meet Frank Harrell. Over the last few years, Frank's been an outstanding mentor for me, though he doesn't know it and, before mid-August, wouldn't have recognized me from Adam.

Frank's comprehensive text, Regression Modeling Strategies, With Applications to Linear Models, Logistic Regression, and Survival Analysis, has been a close companion over the last year and a half, helping me update to the very latest statistical developments for predictive analytics. The book is great because it gives equal weight to the problem domain, theory and math, and programming solutions in the S+/R statistical languages. I've also learned quite a bit from reading the excellent statistical and programming teaching documents on Frank's Web site at Vanderbilt University: http://biostat.mc.vanderbilt.edu/FrankHarrell.
