"The book contains a wealth of modern material that should be covered in more depth in statistics courses: for example, missing data, outlier detection, missing imputation, correlation coefficient matrices, principles of model selection, text mining, and decision trees…The book has many hot and recent packages; many are written or have theory based on results developed since 2010."--MAA.org, April 23, 2014 "Zhao and Cen present 15 real-world applications of data mining with the open-source statistics software R. Each application covers the business background, and problems, data extraction and exploitation, data preprocessing, modeling, model evaluation, findings, and model deployment. They involve a diverse set of challenging problems in terms of data size, data type, data mining goals, and the methodologies and tools to carry out the analysis."--ProtoView.com, February 2014

I am not sure how reputed publishers such as AP can compromise on quality & do a lousy job and the publisher would have been better of by suggesting the authors of the various chapters to use the R-package knitr and that would have brought out the formatting consistency automatically and avoided authors pasting source code into the text document processor & making avoidable mistakes !!!
Content-wise also, not all the applications are interesting. Chapters 6, 11, 12, 14 - all of them use random forest to analyse the data-sets. Not all the chapters are interesting for the reader who is specialising in specific domain. At least they could have chosen the case-studies & the data sets in a way that a wider set of algorithms are covered.
What I found to be the most limiting factor from enjoying the material was the preparation of the text and supplemental materials. For example, chapter 8 syntax does not include syntax on how to import the CSV file nor how to use some packages/functions as detailed in the chapter. Granted it may be assumed the reader should know this ahead of time, I feel for the sake of consistency that such information should still be provided. Consequently, the syntax feels more like a sketchbook rather than a step-by-step process on following the author towards a solution. For those reading this review, you can visit the following link and compare chapter 8 code and dataset - some familiarity with R may be needed to identify the discrepancy: [...]
I was hoping this book would be a great addition to my library and for others, but I cannot justify recommending this book as of now. I hope the authors of the book revisit the supplemental material and text to ensure consistency in the reading.
