This book will help you master R plots the easy way. We have spent a long time creating R plots with different tools (base, lattice and ggplot2) during different academic and working positions. If you want to create highly customised plots in R, including replicating the styles of XKCD, The Economist or FiveThirtyEight, this is your book.
This is a technical book. The scope of the book is to go straight to the point and the writing style is similar to a recipe with detailed instructions. It is assumed that you know the basics of R and that you want to learn how to create beautiful plots.
Each chapter will explain how to create a different type of plot, and will take you step-by-step from a basic plot to a highly customised graph. The chapters’ order is by degree of difficulty.
Every chapter is independent from the others. You can read the whole book or go to a section of interest and we are sure that it will be easy to understand the instructions and reproduce our examples without reading the first chapters.
