Review by Choice Review

Crawley (Imperial College London) offers readers a 950-page comprehensive reference manual for what is perhaps becoming the most powerful and flexible statistical software environment, the R language. The R Book is aimed at undergraduates, postgraduates, and professionals in science, engineering, and medicine, and is also ideal for students and professionals in statistics and related fields. The book assumes no background in statistics or computing and introduces the advantages of the R environment, detailing its applications in a wide range of disciplines. One weakness of the book, however, is that many of the graphs were apparently color-coded and the text frequently refers to the colors, but the book was printed in black and white. Primarily for professionals in statistics and related fields. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals. C. Tappert Pace University
