I was attracted to the size thinking it would be concise and direct, but found it lacking in substantiation for the concepts it introduces.  It has a lot of examples, but they tend to introduce concepts we haven't run into yet which works against the example.  I stuck with it through the first few chapters but am aborting it and going with the better rated (as per amazon) "The Art of R Programming".
