More About the Author
"Barbara Byrne has published another winner--a practically oriented, thorough, and accessible resource for students and researchers who want to harness the power of Mplus for their SEM analyses. The writing is clear and engaging. I anticipate assigning the book in my graduate SEM course and recommending it to fellow researchers. This book will be a valuable resource for moving from knowing about SEM to using it." - Rick H. Hoyle, Duke University, USA
"This book provides a good starting point to newcomers to Mplus. It focuses, as it should for an introductory text, on the basics of 'classical' SEM. If you are new to SEM, plan on using Mplus, and are looking for an introductory text with minimal statistical jargon, this is it." - Albert Maydeu-Olivares, University of Barcelona, Spain
"A solid introduction to the use of Mplus for SEM. All of the common types of structural equation models are illustrated using real examples, building the Mplus syntax from start to finish. The book is an excellent and readable guide for researchers and students who want to learn more about SEM in the context of Mplus." - Roger E. Millsap, Arizona State University, USA
"A hallmark of Byrne's books is their accessibility to new users. … Byrne has done a great service to the field by bringing thousands of students and researchers to structural equation modeling through her clear writing and accessible examples. This book will be another contribution along those same lines. .... I field many, many questions … that could be answered by simply referring the asker to a book like Byrne's." - Kristopher J. Preacher, University of Kansas, USA
"The book is targeted to non-mathematical readers, and hence it focuses on the applications of SEM. It does this very nicely, beginning from the part that covers the basic ideas of SEM and shows how to get started with the Mplus. Overall, this book is an excellent resource for a beginner interested in SEM with Mplus." -Kimmo Vehkalahti, Department of Social Research, Statistics, University of Helsinki, Finland
"Through the use of illustrative examples, this much-needed and well-written book provides an accessible presentation of SEM with Mplus. Those new to SEM and/or Mplus will find Byrne’s book extremely useful as a companion textbook and long-term reference guide." - Sara J. Finney, James Madison University, USA

I highly recommend this book for beginners and for those who need a quick reference in both Mplus and Structural Equation Modeling.
I wish she had also tackled the MONTECARLO command, since it is one of the most powerful and useful components of Mplus, but I understand that the program is simply too complex to address in a single, readable volume. I would certainly suggest that Byrne add a volume 2 to this book in order to address other methodological issues that can be addressed in Mplus.
Looking for a readable companion to the Mplus User's Guide? This is a good choice.
Looking for advanced applications or in-depth arguments over methodology? Keep looking.
