A Good Manual

While trying to figure out how to plot a big dataset from CDC Wonder, I came across the ggplot2 manual. I was very surprised that the manual did not include a single graph or any simple plot--just examples of codes and description of functions! Then I realized that a lot of times I consulted manuals for graphing in R, I rarely saw any graphic examples. The manuals, in general, seldom gives a nice, visual example--students usually end up searching heavily on stack overflow or on blogs. If manuals had examples directly related to the functions, they will save so much time and effort.
