However, sometimes there just wasn’t any way to easily accommodate their suggestions directly in the book.

Obviously, there is also quite a bit of personal “bias” in my selection of topics for the supplemental material. The coverage is far from comprehensive. I have not felt as constrained about mathematical level or statistical background of the readers in the supplemental material as I have tried to be in writing the textbook.
