Quantitative analyses are so often relegated to OLS techniques when they should not be. The authors more than adequately demonstrate the why, what, and how other procedures (GMM, SEM, panel regression, event history analysis to name a few) are far superior to the OLS approaches widely but inappropriately found in published research or used in practice. Kudos to them.
Generalizing the Regression Model is a highly accessible textbook that covers a remarkable array of complex material with ease. Its applications and examples make the material intuitive and interesting for students to learn.
This is an excellent textbook, but more appropriate for a different course design. We will consider it for FTEC 6319 in the future, but before then, we will see how "Data Analysis for Business, Economics, and Policy" works out.
