Editorial Reviews

Review

From the reviews:

TECHNOMETRICS
"The book is an ambitious, and mostly successful, attempt to disseminate effective strategies for the use of regression techniques. Many of the examples are from the medical area, in which the author has worked for many years and has accumulated a wealth of experience. It is written in a clear and direct style…definitely a valuable reference for modern applications of commonly used regression techniques. Data analysis, particularly users of S-PLUS, with experience in the application of these tools will benefit the most from this book."

SHORT BOOK REVIEWS

"This is a book that leaves one breathless. It demands a lot, but gives plenty in return.  ... The book has many sets of programming instructions and printouts, all delivered in a stacato fashion. Sets of data are large. Many different types of models and methods are discussed. There are many printouts and diagrams. Computer oriented readers will like this book immediately. Others may grow to like it. It is an essential reference for the library."

STATISTICAL METHODS IN MEDICAL RESEARCH

"This is the latest volume in the generally excellent Springer Series in Statistics, and it has to be one of the best. Professor Harrell has produced a book that offers many new and imaginative insights into multiple regression, logistic regression and survival analysis, topics that form the core of much of the statistical analysis carried out in a variety of disciplines, particularly in medicine. ... Regression Modelling Stategies is a book that many statisticians will enjoy and learn from. The problems given at the end of each chapter may also make it suitable for some postgrdauate courses, particularly those for medical students in which S-PLUS is a major component. Working through the case studies in the book will demonstrate what can be achieved with a little imagination, when modelling complex and challenging data sets. So here we have a truly excellent, informative and attractive text that is highly recommended."

MEDICAL DECISION MAKING

"Over the past 7 years, I have probably read this book, on its preversion, a half-dozen times, and I refer to it routinely. If my work bookshelf held only one book, it would be this one. The book covers, very completely, the nuances of regression modeling with particular emphasis on binary and ordinal logistic regression and parametric and nonparametric survival analysis...Harrell very nicely walks the reader through numerous analyses, explaining and defining his model-building choices at each step in the process. It is refreshing to have an author present choices and actuallly defend an approach, and in this manner."

"This book emphasizes problem solving strategies that address the many issues arising when developing multivariable models … . The author has a very motivating style and includes opinions, remarks and summary … . The logical path chosen on how to present the material is excellent. … considering the fun I had reading the book, I think that the author’s aims are met and I highly recommend everybody to have a look at the book. Moreover, I recommend purchasing the book to any library." (Diego Kuonen, Statistical Methods in Medical Research, Vol. 13 (5), 2004)

"It is a book that tries to show us how many different tools may be used in combination for regression analysis. … The author gives us plenty of references (466!) to textbooks and papers where we may read more about individual topics; most chapters end with suggestions for further reading and problems. … Many tools are illustrated in five chapter-long case studies. … the author has written a very inspiring book which should be able to teach most of us something … ." (Søren Feodor Nielsen, Journal of Applied Statistics, Vol. 30 (1), 2003)

"This book could serve as a wonderful textbook for a graduate-level or upper undergraduate-level data-analysis class. There are plenty of hands-on exercises … . From a researcher’s perspective, there are enough interesting ideas to easily stimulate research on other fruitful avenues. From an applied statistician’s perspective, the book fills an important gap in the field and would serve as an ideal resource. … a well laid-out, enjoyable book. I wholeheartedly recommend it … to anyone interested in the strategies of intelligent data analysis." (Sunil J. Rao, Journal of the American Statistical Association, March, 2003)

"Regression Modeling Strategies is largely about prediction. … The book is incredibly well referenced, with a 466-item bibliography. … Harrell very nicely walks the reader through numerous analyses, explaining and defining his model-building choices at each step in the process. It is refreshing to have an author present choices and actually defend an approach … . I found his arguments very convincing. Certainly, if you are interested in developing or validating prediction models, you will likely find this book to be very valuable." (Mike Kattan, Medical Decision Making, March/April, 2003)

"Professor Harrell provides descriptions of statistical strategies intended for the analysis of data using linear, logistic and proportional hazard regression models. … Harrell combines statistical theory with a modest amount of mathematics, data in the form of case studies, implementation of regression models, graphics and interpretation making it attractive to Masters or PhD level graduate students as well as biomedical researchers. … this is an excellent book for serious researchers." (Max K. Bulsara, Lab News, August/September, 2002)

Format: Paperback
I feel uneasy about giving an unimpressive rating to what is undoubtedly a substantial and original book - and, behind it, a substantial and useful (and widely used) library of R code - but at the same time know why it could not have been higher.

One star went due to the $120 price tag - I do not insist on costs-plus pricing for books, but notice when the $100 line is crossed - and the 2010 edition being only a re-print of the 2001 original, complete with an out-of-date correspondence e-mail address.

Beyond this, I can start from the author's suggesting his book to master's and PhD biostatistics students, a proposition which I find unhelpful. My statistics background is associated with econometrics, where "Econometric analysis" by Greene is a popular first-year graduate textbook, and let me say this - Greene's is a textbook, Harrell's is not. (By the way, another popular econometrics textbook is Hayashi's, which has a distinct approach, stressing the method of moments. I do not believe that Harrell's book even mentions MM or GMM. Same story with Bayesian modeling. A statistics education based on "Regression modeling strategies" would be a highly incomplete one).

With regard to the book being promoted to "data analysts and statistical methodologists", I will express scepticism about value for statistical methodologists - in 2001, when the book came out, and certainly in 2012 and beyond - and advise "data analysts" to definitely take a look (especially if you are working with survival analysis), but not consider it a "regression bible". I have not been especially impressed with presentation, but was in many cases surprised by the author's odd (to me) choice of emphasis and ordering - variable clustering and principal-component regression?

The reviewer who complained about its price has a point, except that there are other Amazon listings for new books that have prices 40 dollars below the price on this page. The book is excellent and there is tested R code in the 'rms' and 'Hmisc' R packages.

Format: Paperback
largely a waste of time and money. better read the Agresti, Therneau and McCullagh et al books.
90% of the model estimating function calls and plots don't work in R. very messy code difficult to fix in R. maybe it works in S.
book is not written carefully, many examples start from the middle of the example and it is difficult to understand which dataset the author is using and what has been done up to that point.
positive: it has good ideas on modern methods and references on the methods.

I bought this for my job where I do statistical work. It helps to have an advanced degree in Statistics to understand the material. But the book is chock full of information. I was particularly interested in one of the chapters, and when I read through it I was almost overwhelmed by the number of different techniques that were described. It's a great reference for recent advances in regression modeling.

I know the author by reputation as a leading thinker in regression analysis. I've been to several of his lectures and I'm also aware of his excellent contributions to the R statistical software package.
