The author provided a great deal of practical advice on a variety of tangentially related topics that I think is great for students. (Richard S. Mohn 2012-11-21)
The book is of good quality as its content is easy-to-read, comprehensive, and up-to-date. Tourism researchers are highly recommended to read this book if they want to catch up with the latest trend of application of SEM techniques. (Lawrence Hoc Nang Fong and Rob Law European Journal of Tourism Management)
This book is a valuable reference to acquire basic grasps on PLS-SEM, especially for readers who do not have background in advanced statistics... The volume will undoubtedly become a basic reference for students, teachers, researchers, and practitioners interested in learning and teaching the fundamental concepts of PLS-SEM. (Adrian Leguina, University of Manchester)
