Section 4.2 on the apply family of functions and related functions for matrices, arrays, and data frames is by far the most friendly and helpful introduction to the subject that I have seen. ... All datasets, along with the R-code in the book, are available on the website for the text. ... If you are not a trained programmer but you aspire to write code that is efficient and perhaps, from time to time, clever, then this book is a fine place for you to start learning R.
-Homer S. White, MAA Reviews, January 2013

[T]he book is accessible for statisticians of all levels and areas of expertise as well as for novice and advanced R users. ... I recommend it for anyone who wants to learn about the why and how of the most commonly employed statistical methods and their extensions.
