This is a great introduction to Mplus - it's very clearly written and probably the most readable & understandable SEM book I've read. It does only focus on the basics, but has some good references that point to more advanced texts. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone new to Mplus. Looking forward to the follow-up advanced book coming out.
If you want a textbook that it is comprehensive, easy to read and gives you a good first overview this is your book! 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.
A good clear guide to using Mplus. A fairly limited range of models presented but the text is informative, easy to follow and includes some useful tips. A significant flaw with this book is that not all syntax is included. In particular some of the graphs presented were not produced using Mplus. In these cases the syntax for the graphs production and the software used should be included. This is a significant omission. Finally the book is quite expensive.
