"Over the years, I have had the opportunity to teach severalregression courses, and I cannot think of a better undergraduatetext than this one." (The American Statistician)

"The book is well written and has many exercises. It can serveas a very good textbook for scientists and engineers, with onlybasic statistics as a prerequisite. I also highly recommend it topractitioners who want to solve real-life prediction problems."(Computing Reviews)

Modern Regression Methods, Second Edition maintains theaccessible organization, breadth of coverage, and cutting-edgeappeal that earned its predecessor the title of being one of thetop five books for statisticians by an Amstat News bookeditor in 2003. This new edition has been updated and enhanced toinclude all-new information on the latest advances and research inthe evolving field of regression analysis.

The book provides a unique treatment of fundamental regressionmethods, such as diagnostics, transformations, robust regression,and ridge regression. Unifying key concepts and procedures, thisnew edition emphasizes applications to provide a more hands-on andcomprehensive understanding of regression diagnostics. New featuresof the Second Edition include:

  • A revised chapter on logistic regression, including improvedmethods of parameter estimation
  • A new chapter focusing on additional topics of study inregression, including quantile regression, semiparametricregression, and Poisson regression
  • A wealth of new and updated exercises with worked solutions
  • An extensive FTP site complete with Minitab macros, which allowthe reader to compute analyses, and specialized procedures
  • Updated references at the end of each chapter that direct thereader to the appropriate resources for further study

An accessible guide to state-of-the-art regression techniques,Modern Regression Methods, Second Edition is an excellentbook for courses in regression analysis at the upper-undergraduateand graduate levels. It is also a valuable reference for practicingstatisticians, engineers, and physical scientists.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The book is to be praised in that it makes the reader aware of a large number of approaches to regression situations, and also to their possible pitfalls. It is thus an excellent basis for an experienced instructor to teach regression at different levels." (Springer, August 2010)

"This book, at the undergraduate level and even at the graduate level, will be rewarding reading for anyone interested in learning the nuances of regression analysis." (Mathmatical Reviews, January 2010)

"The exercises are interesting and thought-provoking throughout. If you liked the first edition, you will be pleased with this revision also." (International Statistical Review, August 2009)

"The book is well written and has many exercises. It can serve as a very good textbook for scientists and engineers, with only basic statistics as a prerequisite. I also highly recommend it to practitioners who want to solve real-life prediction problems." (Computing Reviews, July 2009)

"In this second edition, Ryan (author, editor, and educator) provides substantial updates and revisions of his popular text for statisticians to include new information on the most current advances and research in regression analysis" (SciTech Reviews, March 2009)

"One would be hard-pressed to find another text that rivals this one in terms of coverage of the regression literature." (The American Statistician, 2009)

"I strongly recommend the book as a reference for anyone teaching or using regression." (MAA Reviews, 2009)

"Highly recommended for those already trained in mathematics and statistics who want a good guide to current practice and issues in multiple regression techniques." (Journal of Biopharmaceutical Statistics, 2009)

Australian & New Zealand Statistics excellent book...worthwhile for anyone that uses regression techniques to obtain their own copy of this book...
