This is a beginning to intermediate book on the statistical language and computing environment called R. As you will learn, R is freely available and open source. Thousands of contributed packages are available from members of the R community. In this book, you learn how to get R, install it, use it as a command-line interpreted language, program in it, write custom functions, use it for the most common descriptive and inferential statistics, and write an R package. You also learn some “newer” statistical techniques including bootstrapping and simulation, as well as how to use R graphical user interfaces (GUIs) including RStudio and RCommander.
