Editorial Reviews

Review

"...anyone with an interest in or need to carry out MR will find it invaluable." - British Journal of Mathematical and Statistical Psychology

"I can't see how a practicing research psychologist could be without a copy." - Dr. Steven P. Reise, University of California at Los Angeles

"Overall we think the book successfully reflects more contemporary issues, thinking, and advances in multiple regression and correlation....The general style and format, consistent with the previous editions, is understandable while still retaining depth and comprehensiveness." - Drs. Lynda A. and Daniel W. King, Boston University School of Medicine

"I think VERY highly of this revision....The chapter on regression diagnostics and graphics (Ch. 4) is a wonderful addition. Also, the emphasis on confidence intervals is great, as is the extensive discussion on logistic regression." - Dr. William F. Chaplin, University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa

"I have always felt that the book's major strength was its ability to blend careful, thoughtful explanation with a relatively non-technical exposition....I am happy to say that in my opinion this edition retains and furthermore expands upon this strength." - Dr. Harry Reis, University of Rochester

Format: Hardcover
This is one of the best applied statistics books I've come across. It's particularly good in its coverage of continuous by continuous variable interactions in regression as well as considering basic issues of hypothesis testing in multivariate regression. I also appreciate its discussion of historical traditions which have lead some fields to be more dependent upon regression and some more ANOVA. I haven't seen one other text that comes even close.

It can be a little difficult to connect with contemporary statistics software (e.g. Stata) and terminology at times. For example, they refer to a technique called Fisher's Protected Least Square Difference Test, which I believe to be the same a joint significance in more common regression parlance, but it is hard to confirm. These type of problems are to be expected with different fields using different terms.

One negative reviewer complains that this book is difficult. This depends on what kind of text one is comparing it to. For the deep level of very useful information that it covers, it is the most readable text I've encountered.

This is a staple in my advanced/graduate psychology research methods courses and for a reason, it is undeniably one of the best books out there on regression and correlation.

That being said--I did struggle with some of the reading and found that some of the more complex concepts can be explained more clearly in Fields' book. Nonetheless this is one of the most comprehensive books out there on regression.

If you're looking for more of a multi-dimensional research methods book--I would go with Tabatchnick and Fidell.

I have never felt compelled to write a review for a textbook before, but this is easily the best statistics book I've ever read. The authors are able to make the complex material easy to understand, and maintain a certain level of lightheartedness, sarcasm and humor throughout the text that actually lead me to chuckle out loud on a few occasions, from a stats textbook! I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to understand how to do regression and stay awake doing so!

Content is good if you are taking an advanced stats class but it is a tough read and some of the examples have rounding errors which can drive you crazy if your professor makes you do hand calculations. I do not recommend buying the Kindle version...get the actual book. The Kindle version is not formatted to be a digital textbook. All the formulas are graphics that appear as really small font size and are almost unreadable. The highlighting works but you can't export the highlights as flashcards. And there are no pages numbers which makes it hard when your professor refers to a page. This is a hard topic and getting the Kindle version only slows you down. I wish there was a supplement that showed examples from SPSS or a similar stats program. This is probably a great book from the classical view but not so much from a student perspective unless you are a stats major...from the 1980s.

This is an excellent book for social scientists that run regressions. The book's focus in practical and has good discussions on violation of regression assumptions. This edition is actually an updated combination of a book by Cohen & Cohen's and a book by Aiken & West. The latter book has been heavily cited for its discussion of moderation analysis. I would complement this book with Wooldridge's excellent Introductory Econometrics: A Modern Approach (with Economic Applications, Data Sets, Student Solutions Manual Printed Access Card), which covers similar ground but with an economics focus.

An excellent reference on multiple methods topics that I have relied upon extensively. Having he Kindle version is even more advantagous due to its' search-ability and the electronic notes and highlights capability.

Well, we all know that it is a must-have for all students learning regression. I just started to read it and found that it also included multilevel issues. Cool, how could these guys be so advanced years ago?
