Presenting topics in the form of questions and answers, this popular supplemental text offers a brief introduction on multiple regression on a conceptual level. Author Paul D. Allison answers the most essential questions (such as how to read and interpret multiple regression tables and how to critique multiple regression results) in the early chapters, and then tackles the less important ones (for instance, those arising from multicollinearity) in the later chapters. With this organization, readers can stop at the end of any chapter and still feel like they've already gotten the meat of the subject.
