Review I find the book by Everitt and Hothorn quite pleasant and bound to fit its purpose. The layout and presentation [are] nice. It should appeal to all readers as it contains a wealth of information about the use of R for statistical analysis. Included seasoned R users: When reading the first chapters, I found myself scribbling small lightbulbs in the margin to point out features of R I was not aware of. In addition, the book is quite handy for a crash introduction to statistics for (well-enough motivated) nonstatisticians.?International Statistical Review (2011), 79â€¦ an extensive selection of real data analyzed with [R] â€¦ Viewed as a collection of worked examples, this book has much to recommend it. Each chapter addresses a specific technique. â€¦ the examples provide a wide variety of partial analyses and the datasets cover a diversity of fields of study. â€¦ This handbook is unusually free of the sort of errors spell checkers do not find. â€¦ ? MAA Reviews, April 2011 Praise for the First Editionâ€¦Brian Everitt has joined forces with a recognized expert who displays an impressive command of this powerful environment â€¦ Much is to be learned in the small details that make this text interesting even for experienced users. â€¦ Special attention is given to graphical methods â€¦ ?Journal of Applied Statistics, May 2007 Useful examples are presented to assist understanding. â€¦ Everitt and Hothorn have written an excellent tutorial on using R to analyze data using a wide range of standard statistical methods. â€¦ I highly recommend the text for anyone learning R and who want to use it for the sophisticated analysis of data.?Joseph M. Hilbe, Journal of Statistical Software, Vol. 16, August 2006 â€¦a useful, compact introduction.?Biometrics, December 2006 â€¦ This book, using analyses of real sets of data, takes the reader through many of the standard forms of statistical methodology using R. â€¦ a very valuable reference. â€¦The book is particularly good at highlighting the graphical capabilities of the language. â€¦?P.
