"I am pleased to report that Adler has risen to the challenge of the highly-regarded “Nutshell” franchise. As is traditional for the series, this title mixes introduction, tutorial, and reference material in a style that is well suited to a reader who already has a background in programming, but is a new or occasional user of R...As a long-time O’Reilly reader, I see Joseph Adler’s R in a Nutshell as a welcome addition to the menagerie."
