This is an very good resource for learning how to implement various statistical methods in R which is based on S The authors do provide some theoretical and mathematical explanation of the various methods they cover, which was helpful as a refresher, but I found it was not as effective for learning the basis of methods I didn t already know, especially because the authors go through things rather quickly They have a wealth of examples from a wide range of fields, which is helpful for people coming to the book from different disciplines However, I found that, once they produced statistical results for a given example, they didn t explain what those results would mean, even in cases in which they had gone into a fair bit of detail explaining the statistical questions they were analyzing the data to ask Since this isn t a statistics textbook as I said before , this is fair, but it woul...

First, I want to say If you don t know it yet , this book even is not recent, is absolutely a basic manual for R, so don t let yourself be distracted by the title There are lots of R functions that will lead you in it s references to this book, and this text is pure gold Venables and Ripley are not only making easy to copy and paste scripts, but they are also giving great introductions, c...

I think this was the first book I bought on R, and it s certainly the most well thumbed The graphing examples are really quite good, but it s a really hard slog if you re new to R Once you ve gotten familiar, though, check it out if you re doing a lot of data visualization work.
