Recently, I received an email from Florian Heiss, Professor and Chair of Statistics and Econometrics at the Henrich Heine University of Dusseldorf.
Florian has used the CreateSpace publishing platform to produce an extremely professional product.

"I'd like to introduce you to a new book I just published that might be of interest to you: Using R for Introductory Econometrics.The goal: An introduction to R that makes it as easy as possible for undergrad students to link theory to practice without any hurdles regarding material, notation, or terminology. The approach: Take a popular econometrics textbook (Jeff Wooldridge's Introductory Econometrics) and make the whole thing as consistent as possible.I introduce R and show how to implement all methods Wooldridge mentions mostly using his examples. I also add some Monte Carlo simulation and present tools like R Markdown.The book is self-published, so I can offer the whole text for free online reading and a hard copy is really cheap as well."
The link for the online version of Florian's book is http://www.urfie.net/.
What you`ll find there are two versions of his 365-page book (Flash and HTML5) that you can read online; and all of the related R files for easy download.
Using R for Introductory Econometrics is a fabulous modern resource. I know I'm going to be using it with my students, and I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn about econometrics and R at the same time.
If you're after a hard copy of the book you can purchase it for the bargain price of US$26.90 directly from CreateSpace, or from Amazon.
