    Have you ever had a friend who was mostly functional, but not quite with it Like, this is a kid that refuses to eat salads with salad dressing and wears shorts when it s 10 degrees outside You re friends for multiple years, but then one day, you finally go to his place and you find out that his parents collect Victorian era dolls and pose them in realistic situations And then as you stare into the eyes of Sally, the life size doll enjoying a cup of tea, you realize, with a sense of sadness and a [...]

    I read this book fairly passively over the summer while at work doing lots of R Programming I also read Hadley s R Packages book It s a great read, and I really feel like I understand the depths of R a lot better now than I used to I can tell when I look back at code in R written last year and now that I have improved a lot I actually have just bought a paper copy which I will keep on my desk for the forseeable future, although most of my reading was done on the laptop This book is written in 4 [...]

    The introduction has hooked me deeply already It s written in the public with complete code base github hadley adv r Good to keep as a reference.

    This book helped a lot to deepen my understanding of how R works and the quirks of R, like data types, scoping, environments, non standard evaluation, and memory usage It s also great that it asks us to code up some basic functions we ve never questioned from scratch, to better understand how those functions work From this book I also learnt some really cool programming skills, like in functional programming, efficient coding, and most importantly, Rcpp The coolest parts are functions that retur [...]

    I would like to call this the best second book on R, except that I wouldn t know what the first one would be I learned R from classes and tutorials about 10 years ago, used it on my PhD and four articles, and use it today on a daily basis at work yet only now, after reading this book, do I feel like I could possibly be called an R programmer rather than just a user.The book deals with a variety of topics that are seldom discussed in the R tutorials you are likely to find freely available Some ar [...]

    I approached this as an R dabbler but seasoned programmer and you need to be one or the other to get the most out of this comprehensive explication.
