Title: Data Manipulation with R
Author(s): Phil Spector
Publisher/Date: Springer/2008
Statistics level: N/A
Programming level: Intermediate
Overall recommendation: Highly recommended

If there is one book that every beginning R user coming from a programming background should have, it is Spector’s Data Manipulation with R. New R users with analytic backgrounds and experience with software packages such as SAS and SPSS will do well to start with Muenchen’s R for SPSS and SAS users, especially given that a free abbreviated version is available, but those users should also make Data Manipulation with R a quick second addition to their library.
