The book is aimed for postgraduates or advanced undergraduates, but in my view it is a very introductory book which is suitable for 2nd year undergraduate. good for introduction, but it does not cover enough material to be truly useful for researchers.

Well structured, easy to follow and, most importantly, it doesn't do all the work for you. On the first chapters you are given a recipe to follow as you build your models, but from there you are left on your own to find your way in model building and programming. Great way to learn.
