So you have checked the publications on R web site? 
http://www.r-project.org/doc/bib/R-publications.html  There is a list 
  William N. Venables and Brian D. Ripley. Modern Applied Statistics with 
  S. Fourth Edition. Springer, 2002. ISBN 0-387-95457-0.
in particular, is a very good book for beginners.  It has a chapter on 
non-linear regression and smooth regression, using packages like nls.

'Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will
the right answers come out?' I am not able to rightly apprehend the
kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question."
