Instead of writing about the 3 main multivariate models above individually he sporadically switches between all 3 models. The TOC is organized as a series of questions and answers. I would have preferred he wrote about each of the 3 topics separately.
Although finding the information you want is difficult, the book is written superbly. He makes it easy to understand difficult concepts such as interactions, model building, collinearity and testing of assumptions. You don't need a math background to understand this book. Aside from the organization of the contents, I loved this book! I would recommend for clinicians who are interested in learning about how multivariate models are created. If you review a lot of manuscripts in medical literature, this is a must read.
