it was amazing

If you're going to read one book on statistical modeling, make it this one. When I teach data science to software engineers, this book is one of the cornerstones. I find that this book has just the right amount of theory for beginner, coupled with very useful R examples.

If you can read, understand, and practice this book, you will be employable as an entry-level data scientist.

One caveat is that I do not recommend emulating the authors' software practices, such as using attach() on data frames or using base-R graphics.
