This book is a product sold and delivered by official, not a third-party sales company. The Art of R Programming: A Tour of Statistical Software Design (8601404372872): Norman Matloff: Books

The product delivered to a customer was not only different from the official description on, but also a fake product with a lot of strange things in the first place. The official stated that the size of the book was 9 inches long × 7 inches wide (about 23 cm × 18 cm wide), but the arrived book was 11 inches × 9 inches (about 28 cm × 23 cm) The difference between the notation and the actual size is about 5cm each.

Looking inside, the surrounding white frame is thick and the design is broken.

Furthermore, the spine is pure white.
