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 uickly 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 uestions they were analyzing the data to ask Since this isn't a statistics textbook as I said before this is fair but it would have been nice to get a little bit explanation of some results especially for techniues with which I was not as familiarAll in all though a great resource when used in conjunction with a statistics textbook or course and the R help files with some good programming examples and some nice time saving tips for using R Anyone who isn't at least somewhat familiar with R already though should be warned that the book is a bit fast on the basics so they won't be able to rely on this exclusively and will have to supplement with the R help documentation and or a introductory resource 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 complete applications and every mathematical condition and function you can imagine to be related to the subjects Finally to be clear this book is really complete easy to read and allows you to get a lot of self learning I totally recomend it I think this was the first book I bought on R and it's certainly the most well thumbed The graphing examples are really uite 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
