Textbook with greta and Up-to-date Install Instructions

Hello greta enthusiasts like me. I just wanted to make you aware of the first textbook (that I know of at least) to incorporate greta. Its called “A Business Analyst’s Introduction to Business Analytics”. A free copy is available here: www.causact.com and the printed version is here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08DBYPRD2.

As the author I am certainly biased about the book, but my students have loved its flow. Its designed to be a step easier than McElreath’s masterpiece “Statistical Rethinking”. So if you want to conquer “Statistical Rethinking”, but need a book to build your R and Bayesian inference confidence first, then this would be it.

I welcome feedback via Twitter (@preposterior) and github(https://github.com/flyaflya/causact). The book is written in RMarkdown, so I can quickly re-compile the book with corrected typos and/or improved comprehension.
