This book is nothing but a scam. Poorly produced, no index, many typos, and many wrong info. No wonder the book doesn't even have a genuine author name. You'll be better off with books such as " R in A Nutshell", "R Cookbook", "Using R for Statistics". There are also free R ebooks available on the Internet. Please don't waste your money as I wasted mine.
I agree with other reviewers that this book is a complete scam. This is a terrible book. It is a self-published, print-on-demand title. The author/publisher is identified only as "Acodemy." It is not a step-by-step guide to R Programming. It is a collection of the author's incoherent notes. He uses terms without explaining or defining them. When he does explain/define a term, the definition is either incomprehensible, or uses so many terms interchangeably as to render all of them meaningless.
Published on 15th February, 30+ glowing 5* reviews posted within two or three days of the initial publication, many of them by reviewers who also seem to be buying other books from the same publisher? This is extremely suspicious and I would recommend anyone considering spending money on this to think twice.
The value of this book is ZERO, ZERO, ZERO, ......stars for this book (paperback version).Many typo's, errors, layout and font are very poor, badly formatted. Un-un-unbelievable ! Biggest blunder purchase ever.
All the tables are misaligned and impossible to read. Steer clear.
It seems pretty clear this was a rush job designed to cash in on the hype around R. It seems pretty clear that English is not the first language of the writer. Sentences start and never finish and worst of all the formatting makes many examples unreadable. It has very variable descriptions. Some sections are written as if you have no background in computing, while others assume that you know a lot.
This book is essentially the R manual copy and pasted. Gives no instruction or problems to practice. Top comments are lies.
Computer programming has always seemed like a foreign language to me. Although with these exceptional books by Acodemy, complex programs are made simple and fast to learn. “R Programming” is no exception as I loved the detailed explanation as to what R is used for, however the author doesn’t stop there, yet continues on with clear, precise instructions on how to get started including coding as well as everything needed to add R Programming to your computer language skills. Whether you have to learn R Programming or just increasing your computer skills you can’t go wrong with this unique book that I highly recommend.
