R Graphics Cookbook provides more than 150 recipes to help scientists, engineers, programmers, and data analysts generate high-quality graphs quickly - without having to comb through all the details of R's graphing systems. Each recipe tackles a specific problem with a solution you can apply to your own project and includes a discussion of how and why the recipe works.

Most of the recipes in this second edition use the updated version of the ggplot2 package, a powerful and flexible way to make graphs in R. You'll also find expanded content about the visual design of graphics. If you have at least a basic understanding of the R language, you're ready to get started with this easy-to-use reference.

Use R's default graphics for quick exploration of data; Create a variety of bar graphs, line graphs, and scatter plots; Summarize data distributions with histograms, density curves, box plots, and more; Provide annotations to help viewers interpret data; Control the overall appearance of graphics; Explore options for using colors in plots; Create network graphs, heat maps, and 3D scatter plots; Get your data into shape using packages from the tidyverse.
