"Mplus is arguably the most flexible commercially available software program for SEM and all of its special cases. Geiser has provided an admirable service to the community of researchers who use Mplus with this highly readable book. The book is an indispensable companion to more advanced SEM texts and is certainly an important supplementary text for graduate courses on SEM."--David Kaplan, PhD, Department of Educational Psychology, University of Wisconsin-Madison
"More and more researchers all over the world are using Mplus. I know of no other book that provides such a truly helpful tutorial on everything from the very first steps to how to run complicated SEM models like latent growth models. Beginners will very much appreciate how much attention the author pays to the basics. Many easy-to-make mistakes can be prevented by keeping this book within arm's reach. It is perfect for researchers at any career stage seeking an accessible, informative introduction to analyzing data with Mplus."--Rens van de Schoot, PhD, Department of Methods and Statistics, Utrecht University, The Netherlands
"This text combines an extensive tutorial in Mplus programming with clear descriptions of the statistical models being implemented. Coverage includes standard path and factor analytic models, as well as longitudinal, multilevel, and latent class models. Many real examples are analyzed throughout the book, with careful explanations of syntax, screen shots to help navigate the program, and thorough discussions of results. The companion website provides the data, input, output, and annotated syntax files for all examples. This book will be of great interest to students and researchers who want not only to learn about Mplus, but also to gain a better understanding of SEM."--Roger E. Millsap, PhD, Department of Psychology, Arizona State University
"Absolutely fantastic! I really wish I had had this book when I was a grad student. I will strongly recommend it to my own students, as well as to colleagues who ask for help with Mplus. The breadth of statistical techniques covered goes far beyond conventional SEM and makes this a valuable resource for both new and experienced Mplus users."--Alex Bierman, PhD, Department of Sociology, University of Calgary, Canada

Looking forward to the follow-up advanced book coming out.
Ignore any reviews that say the writer does not use M-PLUS.
As with any other SEM packages, the researcher needs to prepare the data in simple statistical packages such as SPSS or STATA. So you DO want the writer to write about this step to help you move on from SPSS to M_PLUS.
On the other hand, if you want more a book to induct you into more specialised SEM techniques, this is NOT your book.
Overall, a great introductory book that puts you into the picture quickly and effectively.
