Need the ebook or pdf

I was looking for something basic on R. As an audiobook this isn’t very well done. There are different voices (one American and another British). When edits were inserted they made no attempt to blend them with the original. Probably the most annoying thing is important examples from the book are skipped. This isn’t the end of the world since I retain more when I read+listen anyway; you can find the pdf for free on github.

Honestly you can find much better (and by now more up to date) training on R via video lecture but if like me you learn better by reading vs lecture then this book is ok.

Would would be ideal are audio versions of Hadley Wickham’s books, but this one seems to be the only R audio title available.
