The Hitchhiker's Guide to Ggplot2 (The book + R scripts)
Last updated on 2019-09-06
About the 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.
