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.

Jodie Burchell loves data – no seriously, she loves data. It took a while before she discovered this passion, but during her PhD in psychology she realised that all she wanted to do was apply her knowledge of behavioural sciences and statistics to interesting problems. Her favourite languages are R, Python and Stata. When she is not dreaming about analyses, she enjoys baking, studying Spanish (badly) and reading Reddit.
