    Love Data Stories. In Episode 18 you mention a draft of a book by “Tamara”. I could not catch her name. Can you please put the link or further information up?
    Look forward to further stories.

    Hey guys,

    In regards to Alberto’s course yes it does revolve around his book ‘The Functional Art’….with access to chapters to other books and sources.

    It was a great experience!
