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. The breadth of topics covered is unsurpassed when it comes to texts on data analysis in R.

It is very close to a complete reference-the coverage is excellent. For most users of R, having this book as guide will make life with R much easier, and learning to master it much faster. Undetected country. Now that Wiley and Sons has presumably fired the original editor and layout people responsible for the 1st edition due to their massive incompetence, the 2nd edition allows The R Book to actually achieve that goal of being a handy reference.
It might finally be one of the first books you pluck off your shelf when you need to figure out how to do something with R.
A major challenge with the first edition of The R Book was finding the section you needed. The 1st edition had a table of contents that was 1 page long seriously?
The index at the end has been expanded by another 10 pages, and has been worked over to include what seem to me like more useful descriptors and references to commonly used functions. In the main body of the book, the most important and visually pleasing change is the use of fixed-width fonts for the snippets of code the user is meant to type in at the R command prompt. The original version used proportional width fonts and had no spaces between operators for the user-typed code, making the code hard to read.
This was always a puzzling choice, since the printed output from R displayed in the book did use a fixed-width font. The 2nd edition now has those spaces inserted so that the user-typed code is far more readable, particularly for neophytes.
