Praise for the First Edition

*"The main strength of this book is that it provides a unified framework of graphical tools for data analysis, especially for univariate and low-dimensional multivariate data. In addition, it is clearly written in plain language and the inclusion of R code is particularly useful to assist readers’ understanding of the graphical techniques discussed in the book. … It not only summarises graphical techniques, but it also serves as a practical reference for researchers and graduate students with an interest in data display."* -Han Lin Shang, *Journal of Applied Statistics*

* Graphics for Statistics and Data Analysis with R, Second Edition*, presents the basic principles of graphical design and applies these principles to engaging examples using the graphics and lattice packages in R. It offers a wide array of modern graphical displays for data visualization and representation. Added in the second edition are coverage of the ggplot2 graphics package, material on human visualization and color rendering in R, on screen, and in print.
