Overview

Hugely successful and popular text presenting an extensive and comprehensive guide for all R users

The R language is recognized as one of the most powerful and flexible statistical software packages, enabling users to apply many statistical techniques that would be impossible without such software to help implement such large data sets. R has become an essential tool for understanding and carrying out research.

This edition:

  • Features full colour text and extensive graphics throughout.
  • Introduces a clear structure with numbered section headings to help readers locate information more efficiently.
  • Looks at the evolution of R over the past five years.
  • Features a new chapter on Bayesian Analysis and Meta-Analysis.
  • Presents a fully revised and updated bibliography and reference section.
  • Is supported by an accompanying website allowing examples from the text to be run by the user.

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)

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The book is a valuable addition to the literature on the R environment and is packed with expert knowledge on using R for statistical computing tasks. The book is aimed at beginners and intermediate users seeking to learn skills for using R for statistical computing and data analysis applicable to disciplines ranging from science to economics and from medicine to engineering.” (Computing Reviews, 16 December 2013

“Presents a fully revised and updated bibliography and reference section. Is supported by an accompanying website allowing examples from the text to be run by the user.” (Zentralblatt Math, 1 August 2013)

“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)

    A reviewer

    This is a great book for someone new to R, who also has some background in mathematics and programming. But, it is also helpful for the complete beginner because it shows you, step-by-step, how to load data into the R environment so you can actually get started using R, even if you don't have a nearby R mentor to help you out. The writing is clear and accessible with examples provided for nearly all of the R software tools discussed. Also useful is that the author not only tells you which tools to use, but he also often says why they are important. It's a thick book, but if you take the time to work your way through it, you should actually be able to use R to solve real world problems without external guidance from a R veteran. Check it out!

    A handy book for coding.

    It's not the right book if you want to learn how to use R. It's a good reference book after you have taken a R class or have good programming experience, especially with S or S-Plus. It has many useful tricks for coding. It also covers a lot of updated R packages. The index at the back is what I use most rather than the Contents from the begining. I would recommend this book to people that have basic R experience and want to become an active user of the language.
