I have found "Statistical Computing. An Introduction to Data Analysis
using S-Plus" by Crawley vey helpful as an intermediate text. The book
is very clear, however, there's very little programming.
It's available from Amazon.com.

I am new to R. I am going to by one of the following book:
1.
William N. Venables and Brian D. Ripley. Modern Applied Statistics
with S-Plus.
Third Edition. Springer, 1999. ISBN 0-387-98825-4.
2.
The Fourth Edition of the book from point 1.
3.
`S Programming'
by W. N. Venables and B. D. Ripley
Springer. ISBN 0-387-98966-8, 2000.
I can only by one of the above books.
Q1.
I have found the following info at the site
http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/pub/MASS4/ :
''The material on programming has been reduced since the first and
second editions''
Is that also true that
The material on programming has been reduced since the THIRD edition?
Q2. Which of the books 1 or 2 do you suggest to buy?
I mean which one is more complete?
May be the third (3) book would be enough to learn R?
TIA
Jan
