The richness of the content of this book is amazing! Animations, interactive widgets, Shiny apps, ... These are all I have been hoping to see in online books. Thank you all for the two-year effort and the wonderful book! I hope it will inspire more authors!

We know we should be doing more geo stuff at work, so I'm blazing a bit of a trail, and reading your book. I like it.
