Introduction to Statistics through Resampling Methods and R / S-Plus by Phillip I. Good

Too short. I guess Good took the title quite literally, as he introduces a topic but fails to explain. As I read, I assumed that the teacher's companion would provide an explanative framework. Unfortunately, it just provides some answers to the chapter questions. As a listing of core statistical issues with some good questions, you already need to have learned statistics to derive much benefit from the book.

While Good shows the use of R to deal with statistical questions, using R without a solid understanding of stats principles will only lead to data massacres. Luckily, others stats/R books exist; I hope at least I'll find one that I can recommend.
