Well Worth

Well worth it. What stood out the most was the organization of topics and presentation of a deep topic from a ground-floor-up perspective. The author really explained everything well and I really appreciate it. I learned so many amazing things from this book and will surely recommend this book.

Waste of money- IMO

The narrator was fine. It was a really short summary type book to begin with and took forever getting through the introduction. Quoting code would've been fine, if I'd been provided a worksheet to go along with it. Thumbs down from me, a useless purchase.

Very basic. nothing useful for data analysis

It has almost nothing directly applicable for data science projects . Good start for R intro but not very useful. I expected more depth in the data's structures at least.

Work along while listening to this book.

This book can be best used by working along on your laptop since the narrator provides exploratory code to help you understand the basic features and syntax of the R language.

A Tremendous Book

This book is tremendous. It takes the reader through R without getting bogged down in an explanation of statistics and data modeling. If you are new to R, this is the book to start with. It covers basics, importing data, using the help files, R packages, graphs, record keeping, trouble shooting and basic programming, each with some examples.
