Bayesian Reasoning and Machine Learning by David Barber appears to be a good book. I am interested in both theory and practice.

Any recommendations for packages and books will be appreciated. I recently purchased Data Mining with R by Luis Torga.

Thank you!
Some of my colleagues have told me that "videolectures.net" contains some good tutorial lectures on some of the topics.
