Great introductory book for those who want to program in R, 17 Mar 2013
The book requires no background in programming in general, and does a solid work explaining the basics of R data structures, data manipulations and so forth. Beginning with simple things, the book discusses some of the more advanced subjects as well. I have read a few books on R already, but this one has had the largest impact in terms of understanding the language. My programs became better and faster for sure.
