About this book

Introduction to the fundamentals of regression analysis, focusing on the fitting and checking of both linear and nonlinear regression models, using small and large data sets.

I would wholeheartedly recommend this book to any statistician. The third edition has many advantages over the second. (Statistical Methods in Medical Research, Vol. 9, 5) "this is an excellently written book" (Statistics & Decisions, Vol. 19, No.3, 2001)
