This is another R book I would definitely recommend to those who are new to R. As an experienced useR, I already know most of the information in this book, but I nevertheless learnt some cool new tricks I didn't know about before, such as the rio package for file IO and automatically formatting code in RStudio. Now I really love RStudio more.
