"With its focus on conceptual understanding and practical applications, this book is highly recommended to medical and other health science researchers who desire to improve their understanding of regression analysis for a better understanding of medical literature, for the adequate presentation of their own regression outcomes, or for improved interpretation of their results for publications and presentations. … Additionally, this book can serve as supplemental reading for an applied graduate level course on general regression models."-Journal of Agricultural, Biological, and Environmental Statistics"The book can be a very helpful contribution especially for researchers in medical sciences when performing their statistical analyses and trying to interpret the results obtained. … This book provides plenty of practical knowledge about these basic models and also some of their extensions that is often not easy to find from statistical textbooks or from software manuals. The basic methods are well explained and illustrated by numerous practical examples, mainly using simulated datasets."-Tapio Nummi, International Statistical Review
