Hey A friend and I are thinking of having an algebraic statistics seminar next semester. Does anyone know of a good book to try learn it out of?

I've heard that the book of Sturmfels and Pachter is supposed to be good. But it's a bit slanted towards biological applications, which may or may not be what you're into.

I took a course in Algebraic Statistics from the book of Drton, Sturmfels, and Sullivant called "Lectures on Algebraic Statistics". I learned a lot from the book, and I enjoyed the material tremendously. (My background is in algebraic geometry, by the way.)
