Advanced R, Second Edition (Hadley Wickham)

This book aids in your fundamental comprehension of R's operation. It is intended for both R programmers who want to learn the language more thoroughly and programmers with experience in other languages who want to learn what makes R unique.

You will learn the fundamentals of R, as well as functional, object-oriented, and metaprogramming programming paradigms, as well as effective strategies for debugging and code optimization.

The second edition contains a thorough update:

  • New foundational chapters: "Names and values," "Control flow," and "Conditions"
  • comprehensive coverage of object-oriented programming with chapters on S3, S4, R6, and how to choose between them
  • Much deeper coverage of metaprogramming, including the new tidy evaluation framework
  • use of new packages like rlang (, which provides a clean interface to low-level operations, and purr ( for functional programming
  • Use of color in code chunks and figures
