Taking you on a voyage of discovery through R and RStudio, this completely updated second edition combines real-world examples and humour with a hands-on, 'how to' approach that brings statistics and programming to life. 

In his characteristic irreverent and engaging style, Andy Field takes a fun and flexible yet rigorous approach to doing statistics in a book that:

  • Builds statistical understanding at an accessible pace, giving you the confidence to develop your statistics and programming knowledge
  • Encourages self-testing and reflection so you can practice your new skills
  • Offers support and resources for whatever learning style you have and whatever stage your journey is at with a cast of colourful characters.
