“Overall, The R Book (Second Edition) is a great guide to the vastly powerful and constantly evolving software that is R. It is very close to a complete reference-the coverage is excellent. For most users of R, having this book as guide will make life with R much easier, and learning to master it much faster.” (Nekkidblogger.com, 30 April 2013)"It is a classic that does not just sell to students during term time but has a much wider appeal ... This edition will sell really well on publication." (The Bookseller, 16 December 2011)

Praise for the first edition:
‘…if you are an R user or wannabe R user, this text is the one that should be on your shelf. The breadth of topics covered is unsurpassed when it comes to texts on data analysis in R.’ (The American Statistician, August 2008)‘The High-level software language of R is setting standards in quantitative analysis. And now anybody can get to grips with it thanks to The R Book…’ (Professional Pensions, July 2007)

If you have the 1st and don't care about the physical presentation, then don't bother. If you're looking for an overview of stats and R (either from the ground up, or as a refresher), this does the best job of the half-dozen or so I've read. It won't get you the guns to argue with a Ph.D math stat, but no intro book will.
