Though the book is very informative, I still found it to be at a difficulty level not suitable to the beginner. R is quite complicated anyway. The instructions to make use of it need to be put as simply as possible.

Nonetheless, the book is well organized, and detailed. A good textbook.

This is by far the best 'how-to-use-"R"' book... ever!
I highly recommend going through all of the exercises in the book. The data comes with the basic "R" download in the 'ISwR' library.
