From the book reviews:

"This 300 pages book a very good introduction to CSS, as it covers all relevant aspects that are fundamental to start a CSS research. ... the book could be used for teaching methodological aspects of modeling in the social sciences ... . Claudio-Cioffi's book is a must read for any beginner of CSS. ... It is a great synthesis of the main achievements in this field that could be fruitfully adopted by anyone teaching CSS as an introductory guide." (Frantisek Kalvas,, February, 2015)

"It is a nice introduction for beginners to grasp the fundamentals of CSS. ... This well-organized book provides a timely and comprehensive systematic introduction to CSS. The chapters are relatively independent. ... Although this book is intended as a CSS textbook for graduate students ... anyone who is interested in the fundamentals of CSS would benefit from reading it." (Chenyi Hu, Computing Reviews, August, 2014)
