"We are all Bayesians at heart--in that we all have prior knowledge--so why use a frequentist approach to statistics? This book can help you understand and implement a Bayesian approach."--John J. McArdle, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Southern California

"This much-needed book bridges the gap between Bayesian statistics and social sciences. It provides the reader with basic knowledge and practical skills for applying Bayesian methodologies to data-analysis problems. The focus on Bayesian psychometric modeling is noteworthy and unique."--Jay Myung, PhD, Department of Psychology, Ohio State University

"Bayesian analysis has arrived--and Kaplan has written exactly the book that social science faculty members and graduate students need in order to learn Bayesian statistics. It is sophisticated yet accessible, complete yet an easy read. This book will ride the crest of the Bayesian wave for years to come."--William R. Shadish, PhD, Department of Psychological Sciences, University of California, Merced

"I like that this book is concise but very comprehensive, with topics ranging from the basic regression model to the advanced mixture model. Well-organized sections move from foundations; to model building, basic regression, and generalized linear models; to advanced topics. The author's explanations of concepts and examples are clear and straightforward. He has chosen his examples well; they address very commonly studied research questions in the educational sciences. The ability to access the code and data online will benefit researchers and students tremendously."--Feifei Ye, PhD, Department of Psychology in Education, University of Pittsburgh
