From the Publisher"This book requires no prior knowledge of calculus, programming, or statistics. … the commands and real-world examples are explained very thoroughly. This should make the book suitable for self-study and hold interest for the target group (high school and college-level students) …"
—Joonas Kauppinen, International Statistical Review (2013), 81, 2
"An R book for high schoolers! This is an excellent idea, and the quality of the product is equally excellent. It may be suitable for non-calculus-based introductory courses at the college level as well. … Dennis does a good job dispelling the ‘steep learning curve’ myth concerning R … . The writing style is clear and lively, and the examples should appeal to high school students. It is high time that introductory statistics be taught in an engaging manner that reflects our own enthusiasm for the subject, with meaningful data sets, attractive graphics, and so on. Dennis’ book is a fine contribution toward that goal."
