"Dave MacKinnon's book will be a welcome addition to the field. The topic of statistical mediation is important for researchers who want to examine models more complex than simple prediction." -Lisa L. Harlow, PhD, University of Rhode Island "Overall, I found these chapters to be uniformly excellent. The text was well written, nicely organized, and technically rigorous while remaining broadly accessible." -Patrick Curran, PhD, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
