Discrete Choice Analysis by Ben-Akiva and Lerman is an extremely well-written presentation of methods of travel demand analysis and their application to real-world policy planning. The book has been well received and highly praised by my students. It also is an excellent resource for practicing professionals and researchers who are interested in the analysis of qualitative choice behavior in travel decision making and other fields of human behavior. -- Frank S. Koppelman, Professor of Civil Engineering and Transportation Discrete Choice Analysis is an ideal text for a course in travel demand modeling; it describes the statistical concepts used for estimation, provides a complete description of the theoretical and practical bases for disaggregate models and shows how these models can be used in travel demand forecasting. It is also an important book for the practicing professional, synthesizing and illustrating state-of-the-art applications of the most significant developments in travel demand modeling. -- Thomas J. Adler, Research Associate Professor of Engineering, Resource Policy Center, Thayer School, Dartmouth College This book is distinguished for its clear notation, its lucidity, and comprehensiveness. It will be enormously useful both as a text and as a reference volume. -- Richard E. Quandt, Professor of Economics, Princeton University
