Anyone here have some recommendations for a good book introducing the reader to Bayesian statistics?

Let me mention my background. My undergraduate majors were in Actuarial Science and Statistics, and I did very well with an Elementary Probability Theory course during graduate school.

I am looking towards applying Bayesian theory in card game simulations. I have tried searching MSE, but none of the current recommendations appear to be useful for my present purposes.

Thank you!

For an introduction, I would recommend Probabilistic Programming & Bayesian Methods for Hackers by Cam Davidson-Pilon, freely available online.

The following book will be useful
