* A self-contained introduction to probability, exchangeability and Bayes' rule provides a theoretical understanding of the applied material. * Numerous examples with R-code that can be run "as-is" allow the reader to perform the data analyses themselves. * The development of Monte Carlo and Markov chain Monte Carlo methods in the context of data analysis examples provides motivation for these computational methods.
