Introduction to Statistical Learning, with applications in R (2nd edition)
In press, and to appear soon in 2021. Three additional chapters in additional 179 pages:

  • Deep Learning
  • Survival Analysis and Survival Data
  • Multiple Testing

glmnet 4.0 released May 2020 and on CRAN. Major addition is full GLM family functionality. Any legitimate GLM family object can be passed as the family argument to glmnet, over and above the built-in (and more computationally efficient) families which are specified by character strings.
All the new features of glmnet 3.0 apply, including relaxed lasso and elastic net, software for model assessment, functions for building the X matrix that can deal with NAs and factor inputs, a progress bar for fitting big models, and more.
