"The examples are great and are used effectively. In the basic model chapters, readers can learn from these examples about how to actually fit these models, how to read and interpret the output, and, most important, the right language to report the findings. The book's emphasis on using graphs to visualize model results will make it easier for novices to grasp subtle concepts and avoid pitfalls. The author's Medgraph and Modgraph are great tools. I would consider using this book as a supplement in an advanced statistics class. Its conversational style will complement the more formal presentation of most textbooks." - Maria M. Wong, PhD, Idaho State University, USA "The first volume to focus on mediation and moderation, this book explains their differences from historical, substantive, and modeling perspectives. It is abundant with 'how-to' examples and provides readers with modeling tools that can be used directly in research. This is a suitable supplemental text for intermediate or advanced courses dealing with regression, hierarchical linear modeling, or structural equation modeling. The inclusion of cutting-edge topics such as mediated moderation and moderated mediation will attract more advanced quantitative researchers as well." - Feifei Ye, PhD, University of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA
