Well, it would be much easier to meet your demands if you could give us an idea what you exactly looking for. Anyway, there are some recommendations in R-Manual regarding introduxtory materials on doing statistics in R. If I remember correctly there are also some advices on in the generell FAQ.
If you're looking for some introductory stuff doing data manipulation in R the book of Peter Dalgaard, Introductory Statistics with R should be taken into consideration.
Not long time ago there was a similar question to this list, giving the whole range of available books on statistics in S/R . Have a look at, you'll will be overwhelmed.
Last but not least, if you look at r-cran website you'll find in contributed section some case-oriented tutorials, i.e. data mining or similar stuff!
