"...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
This third edition continues in the tradition of the broadly-used system first developed by the authors but with many modifications to reflect modern and developing practices in the field. It includes an increased emphasis on graphical presentations used throughout the text and new chapters have also been included, discussing such topics as alternative procedures, the potential problems of outliners, multilevel models for clustered data, and answering research questions using longitudinal data. While the book is addressed to behavioural and social scientists, it is also intended for a wide audience of students and researchers. The non-mathematical, applied, and data-analytic orientation of the book ensures the authors' goal that anyone with an introductory knowledge of statistics can use it.
