From the reviews:
"The code is arranged by chapter. It is easy and straight forward to run the code. The chapters have lots of exercises. This is a good book to learn both statistics and R." (Cats and Dogs with Data, maryannedata.com, March, 2014)
"This book is organized in a methodical manner. ... each chapter ends with a sample output so readers can check their own R code and true/false questions to test readers' knowledge. ... this is a well-done book that will be useful for self-learners or specialists in application areas who can use it as a practical source for statistical analysis, as well as the source of R code for libraries." (Mike Minkoff, Computing Reviews, August, 2013)
"The monograph presents an introductory course on statistics, with numerous illustrations using R. In its 15 chapters, the book covers such topics as R installation, laws of probability, randomness, distributions of various kinds, hypothesis testing, classical Chi-square, z-, t-, and F-tests, correlation and linear regression, resamplingwith jackknife, bootstrap, and cross validation, andmetaanalysis and significance...those who already are familiar with R can find the book useful for an introduction to statistical concepts, with the numerical examples which can be reproduced by the downloaded scripts."
