Descripción del producto
From the reviews:
"This book can be seen as a valuable source for lattice users at all levels. … The book nicely shows that making good graphics is a process and the reader is guided by the author in a wealth of examples through the various steps needed to reach the final result. A nice feature of the book is that it has an accompanying homepage that contains all the R code and figures of the book." (Klaus Nordhausen, International Statistical Review, Vol. 76 (3), 2008)
"Lattice is a package for R, and it greatly extends the already impressive graphical capabilities. … I suggest that many users of lattice (and most users of R probably ought to use lattice) should buy this book. … if one is using this book for self-study, exercises would be very helpful. … I recommend this book to anyone with a particular interest in the lattice package or a general interest in R graphics." (Peter L. Flom, The American Statistician, Vol. 63 (1), February, 2009)
“The book has 14 chapters separated in three parts. … very accessible to those inexperienced in the S language. For those readers that have more experience with R, the book is also quite useful. … Overall, if you are learning R or have not moved beyond the traditional S graphics system, the book shows the range possibilities of what can be done. … everyone using R would benefit from this book.” (Max Kuhn, Technometrics, Vol. 52 (3), August, 2010)
Reseña del editor
Written by the author of the lattice system, this book describes lattice in considerable depth, beginning with the essentials and systematically delving into specific low levels details as necessary. No prior experience with lattice is required to read the book, although basic familiarity with R is assumed. The book contains close to 150 figures produced with lattice. Many of the examples emphasize principles of good graphical design; almost all use real data sets that are publicly available in various R packages. All code and figures in the book are also available online, along with supplementary material covering more advanced topics.Ver Descripción del producto

Where the book falls down is in supporting people beyond the initial learning phase. There is a lot of attention on the intro details, but later when somebody wants to merge multiple plots using trellis c() or create arbitrarily complex levelplots with unusual dendrograms.... All those special use-cases aren't present, and some guidance into the internals and the ways of tweaking it accomplish sophisticated tasks are missing. Once you get past "creating your own panel functions", the book stops, and leaves advanced audiences posting to R-help hoping for an answer (or mining the source-code itself).
So lattice = awesome, and this book is the best intro to it, but eventually you will find yourself wanting more, and being unable to find it.
It's a great supplement to some tutorials available online (as well as the R forums).
It is not comprehensive, and leaves a few issues unaddressed. But it is well written and easy to follow, enough so that even beginning users will have an easy time creating some very effective graphs.
UPDATE: Although Lattice is still a great package, and this book is one of the best ways to learn how to use it, I know use ggplot2 almost exclusively for my graphing purposes. Hadley Whickam's book is also very helpful, so I recommend checking that out. ggplot2: Elegant Graphics for Data Analysis (Use R!)
As a side note, lattice is like R's base graphics on steroids. After having this book for a while, I decided to investigate ggplot2, the other major R graphics package, and I think I'll stick with ggplot2. It has a totally different philosophy from lattice (and thus base graphics) which allows for an incredible flexibility without resorting to tinkering with the engine (i.e. lattice's panel functions). ggplot2 has a draft PDF manual online and a nice reference website.
I ultimately chose ggplot2, but I still give this lattice book high marks and will keep it nearby for if I have to work with lattice. With its status as a recommended R package, lattice is more widespread and several packages now use it as their graphics foundation.
A book like this deserved a production effort from Springer, and about three times as many color plates as it has, but even as it is seems to me quite good.
Aside from the description of the Lattice package, that Deepayan Sarkar obviously knows as only its designer can, there is a wealth of comments on graphics design and pointers to the classics of the subject --Tufte, Cleveland, etc.
A book not to miss by any seriously interested in statistical graphics, or indeed by anyone willing to add a powerful tool to his/her graphics toolbox. May I only add that those willing to make a further investment of time to obtain the most of this book, might consider Murrell's "R Graphics" (Chapman & Hall), also a masterpiece of expository writing, discussing (in its chapter 4) Lattice graphics within the context of grid ---grid being the underlying graphics model on which Lattice is built.
