I am new to R and am currently gathering reference books. In 'An Introduction to
R' I have read the following:

"For R, the basic reference is 'The New S Language: A Programming Environment
for Data Analysis and Graphics' by Richard A. Becker, John M. Chambers and Allan
R. Wilks. The new features of the 1991 release of S (S version 3) are covered in
'Statistical Models in S' edited by John M. Chambers and Trevor J. Hastie."

There is no mention of 'Programming with Data: A Guide to the S Language' by
John M. Chambers. Is this newest ("Green") book also suitable as a reference
for R? Thank you for your time and attention!
