"This book offers a superb treatment of structural equation modeling. It is really the clearest and most accessible introduction that I have encountered and, as such, it should be the leading source on the topic for many years to come. Kline has a remarkable talent for writing clearly about difficult and complex issues and making the logic of modeling clear to the reader. The book has a wise and gentle hand, thoroughly and thoughtfully discussing both the virtues and potential abuses of SEM. I will certainly use it in my classes and recommend it to others." --Charles M. Judd, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of California, Berkeley
"This clear guide provides a user-friendly SEM roadmap for those navigating unfamiliar statistical waters. The book translates abstract and often complex mathematical concepts into plain speech. As such, it will be a welcome resource to those teaching in this area. Both novices and experts will appreciate the logical chapter organization and the useful chapter summaries. Students or professionals seeking to incorporate SEM into their armamentarium of statistical tools will do well to make this book required reading." --Jeffrey P. Bjorck, PhD, Assistant Professor of Psychology, Department of Clinical Psychology, Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena, CA
