From the PublisherI find the book by Everitt and Hothorn quite pleasant and bound to fit its purpose. The layout and presentation [are] nice. It should appeal to all readers as it contains a wealth of information about the use of R for statistical analysis. Included seasoned R users: When reading the first chapters, I found myself scribbling small lightbulbs in the margin to point out features of R I was not aware of. In addition, the book is quite handy for a crash introduction to statistics for (well-enough motivated) nonstatisticians.
