Reviews

"The versatility and efficiency of ggplot have led to the development of ggplot2 and this book which overviews the standard use and presentation secrets of functions developed in the last 5 years. ... The book is written in an accessible manner and it is suitable for undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers with some R experience. All theoretical concepts are accompanied by code making it easy to learn by reproducing the examples." (Irina Ioana Mohorianu, zbMATH 1397.62006, 2018)

"The book is an excellent and very comprehensive manual of ... one of the most popular R packages. It is currently the only book describing ggplot2 in such depth. The book contains many examples and is very nicely illustrated, demonstrating the strength of the package." (Klaus Galensa, Computing Reviews, May, 2017)
