There could be a lot of interesting and unexpected ways that bookdown could be used to generate content. For example, automated software tests for clinical data analysis programs can be scheduled to run overnight and used knitr to create PDFs to show to auditors. The issue is that hundreds of files could be created. Bookdown could generate a much more organized and cross-referenced package to show to regulators during audits. ~ Max Kuhn
I definitely recommend publication, and as quickly as possible. People are waiting for this. The R/bookdown/knitr system is better than GitBook for scientific work with code and formulas, especially if combined with R Studio. ~ Jan de Leeuw, UCLA
I would whole-heartedly recommend this book for publication. I think the ability to render long documents in a variety of formats, with text intermingled with code, will only grow in importance in future years. This book and associated package are clearly a major step towards being able to achieve this. The book was very well written, and notwithstanding the few suggestions I had for improvements, I think there is little modification that needs to be done before publication. I am sure it will prove interesting and useful to many readers. ~ Michael Grayling, U. of Cambridge
Bookdown is hugely useful for long-form documents: books, course notes, theses/dissertations. And I expect it to be widely adopted for those purposes…The book is quite nicely written: clear and concise. ~ Karl Broman, U. of Wisconsin
The audience would absolutely include R users who are comfortable with Word but not LaTeX (for example, in my department, most of the graduate students have used R Markdown, but only a couple know LaTeX)…One huge advantage of bookdown is that you can have a current version of a book online as you develop it. ~ Brooke Anderson, Colorado State U.
Simply amazing! Six hours, basic R and R Markdown knowledge, and I created a book using bookdown. ~ Lars Schoebitz
