5.0 out of 5 stars The only book you need to learn and master R, 17 Nov. 2011
This review is from: The Art of R Programming: A Tour of Statistical Software Design (Paperback)
"The Art of R Programming" by Norman Matloff is an excellent book and probably is the only book you need to learn and master R. Master it as a programmer and not just as an occasional user. I was such a user, using R only for some statistical tests and doing some plots. However, Norman's book completely changed the way I approached R. By teaching it as a programming language rather than a statistical tool, it increased immensely my knowledge on R and making it more useful for my research work. The book covers the fundamentals about R (always with a programmer's view) and guides you to advanced and useful topics such as Parallel R, debugging, interface to other languages, etc. The writing style is very concise and clear. The explanations, advices and examples very good. This book convinced me early on to properly learn R and I am sure it is the best book for that. I highly recommend this book to everyone who needs to use R or wants to add it to their toolbox.
