Modern Applied Statistics with S (Fourth Edition) is one of the oldest and most popular books on Applied Statistics using R and S-plus. A large number of topics in Applied Statistics are covered in this book and it is certainly not for the faint hearted. A sound knowledge of the Statistical Methods covered in each Chapter is important and there are the book includes many examples of using a wide range of techniques.

The book opens with an overview of the S programming language and has an introductory analysis session to get the reader into using the system and to provide an idea of the way analysis is undertaken and some of the methods that are available to the analyst.

The second Chapter introduces objects, which are an important part of the S programming language and the chapter covers a number of common data manipulation tasks and also the data frame which is probably the most useful object for the user. A brief coverage of data import and export follows and could possibly benefit from providing some more examples rather than focussing on describing the function arguments. There is a nice little section of working with subsets of data frames which is an important topic for analysis. The chapter ends well on creating tables and cross-tabulation of data.
