Wiley was proud to publish the second edition of The R Book at the end of 2012. This hugely successful and popular textbook presents an extensive and comprehensive guide for all R users.

The R language is recognized as one of the most powerful and flexible statistical software packages, enabling users to apply many statistical techniques that would be impossible without such software to help implement such large data sets. R has become an essential tool for understanding and carrying out research.
