         Apart from the free documentation at "www.r-project.org" and 
this list, the following books have been very helpful for me: 

      Venables & Ripley (2002) Modern Applied Statistics with S 
(Springer) and (2000) S Programming (Springer). 

      Pinheiro and Bates (2000) Mixed-Effects Models in S and S-Plus 

      I'm sure there are many other excellent books, but I am not 
sufficiently familiar with them to comment. 

      hope this helps.  spencer graves
