A decent review.

It glosses over helpful functions swiftly, and takes its sweet time over less useful functions.
Not a good starting step.

Excellent intro to learning R. I liked the end of chapter command summary table. The book is full of practical examples which you can use immediately with your own data set. Also, having access to various other data sources (link provided by authors), and chapter exercises were key in learning the material.
