Winner! Best Introductory Statistics book

Summary Review: This book is a very good statistics book AND a very good introduction to R!  A truly winning combination.  Its main competitor, Dalgaard's Introductory Statistics with R (2008), is very R focused and a bit hard to get started with if you have no knowledge of R or of programming in general.  This book really helps you focus on the statistics and gets you going with R programming with comfort, even if you have no prior experience with programming.  Highly recommended- even if you already own a copy of Dalgaard (2008)!  For example, one grad student in the review who is taking a course in Stats based on Dalgaard (required purchase), also bought a copy of this book because it was so much easier to dive into.
