Advanced R by Hadley Wickham

You’re reading the first edition of Advanced R; for the latest version see the second edition.


This is the companion website for Advanced R, a book in Chapman & Hall’s R Series. The book is designed primarily for R users who want to improve their programming skills and understanding of the language. It should also be useful for programmers coming to R from other languages, as it explains some of R’s quirks and shows how some parts that seem horrible do have a positive side.

(You may also be interested in R Packages, a similar book teaching you how to make the most of R’s fantastic package system.)
