Publisher: Sebastopol, CA : O'Reilly, ©2012.
Edition/Format:   Print book : English : 2nd edView all editions and formats
Summary:
When professionals are faced with analyzing moderate-to-large data sets, tools like Excel do not have the power or flexibility. R was designed for these situations, with good graphical capabilities and a large, robust library of contributed packages. While most books on R are stiff and academic, this Nutshell guide offers a readable overview of R, and contains a reference for the most commonly used features.
