While this book states that it is not an R/Statistics book, it focuses primarily on Statistics. This isn't a bad thing, just not what I wanted. If you need a book that shows you how to use R and does not teach Stats, then this is for you. If, like me, you need an R book to learn how to use R for things other than Stats, this book is a great starting point. It gives enough information to give the reader a helping hand in understanding built in functions that can be used outside of statistics and gives a good grounding in the basic use of R. While this book won't make you a proficient professional in R, it will help in understanding the online documentation to get you to a higher level of proficiency.
