R Data Analysis without Programming

"This book is a straightforward resource for students or data analysts who would like to use R without investing valuable time learning the minutia associated with programming in R. David Gerbing makes an intimidating programming language manageable with examples from real-world scenarios. What sets this book apart is the depth and approachable level in which the output is explained."
--Tiffany A. Whittaker, The University of Texas at Austin, USA
