[R] Book recommendation for newbie to stats and R?

George W. Gilchrist
Kevin,

I teach biostats and have used many of these books and all are good.  
Mick Crawley's Statistics: An Introduction using R would be my first  
choice. It is clear, clever, and makes good use of the strengths of  
R. Crawley has a larger book entitled Statistical Computing that is  
also great. The focus of both is largely on linear models.

George
