I’m thrilled to announce the release of my first ebook! *Regression Analysis: An Intuitive Guide for Using and Interpreting Linear Models*.

If you like the clear writing style I use on this website, you’ll love this book! The end of the post displays the entire table of contents! You can also download a Free Sample that includes the complete Table of Contents and the first two chapters. Go to My Store to download the ebook sample.

Over the course of this full-length ebook (338 pages), you’ll progress from a beginner to a skilled practitioner. I’ll help you intuitively understand regression analysis by focusing on concepts and graphs rather than equations and formulas. I use everyday language so you can grasp regression at a deeper level.

You will learn practical tips for performing your analysis and interpreting the results. Feel confident that you’re analyzing your data properly and able to trust your results. Know that you can detect and correct problems that arise.

Regardless of your background, I will show you how to perform regression analysis. Students, career changers, and even current analysts looking to take your skills to the next level, this book has absolutely everything you need to know for regression analysis.

## My eBook Covers A Lot About Regression Analysis!

In this ebook, you’ll learn many facets of regression analysis including the following:

- How regression works and when to use it.
- Selecting the correct type of regression analysis.
- Specifying the best model.
- Understanding main effects, interaction effects, and modeling curvature.
- Using continuous and categorical (nominal) variables.
- Interpreting the results.
- Assessing the fit of the model.
- Generating predictions and evaluating their precision.
- Checking the assumptions.
- Examples of different types of regression analyses.
- Downloadable datasets so you can try it yourself.
- Answers common questions and concerns I’ve encountered over the years!

I’ve literally received thousands of requests from aspiring data scientists for guidance in performing regression analysis. This book is my answer – years of knowledge and thousands of hours of hard work distilled into a thorough, practical guide for performing regression analysis.

You’ll notice that there are not many equations in this book. After all, you should let your statistical software handle the calculations so you don’t get bogged down in the calculations and can instead focus on understanding your results. Instead, I focus on the concepts and practices that you’ll need to know to perform the analysis and interpret the results correctly. I’ll use more graphs than equations!

Don’t get me wrong. Equations are important. Equations are the framework that makes the magic, but the truly fascinating aspects are what it all means. I want you to learn the true essence of regression analysis. I want you to understand the essential concepts, practices, and knowledge for regression analysis so you can analyze your data confidently. That’s the goal of my book.

I hope you’ll enjoy it! Table of contents are below!

Buen día, me alegra saber que te ocupas de la interpretación de los datos de regresión, ese tema es el que más le cuesta a los estudiantes, lo veo con mis alumnos. Felicitaciones Jim! Saludos desde Jujuy, norte de Argentina. Graciela.-

Anoop says

You should sell this in Amazon! I am going to get this.

Jim Frost says

Thank you, Anoop!

David says

Hi Jim, could you please show the table of content of the book?

Jim Frost says

Hi David,

Thanks for writing. I just added screenshots of the complete table of contents at the end of this post (after the text but before the comments section).

You can also get a free sample of this ebook that you can find in My Store. This sample contains the full Table of Contents and the first two chapters.

Jamil Ahmad says

What’s difference between regression and ANOVA model ?

Anirban Mukherjee says

Thanks for clarifying Jim!

Anirban Mukherjee says

Hi Jim! Have you used any platform to show these concepts? Python or R or Matlab?

Jim Frost says

Yes, I use Minitab. However, the output I show will be recognizable to users of all other software (coefficients, p-values, ANOVA table, many graphs, etc.). This ebook is more about teaching how to use and interpret regression analysis, identifying and resolving problems, etc. rather than teaching a particular analytical package.

Bhavik Patel says

Hey Jim,

Any chance you could turn this into an actual paper book? I haven’t had much luck reading ebooks in the past. Thank you for contributions.

Jim Frost says

Hi Bhavik,

If there’s enough demand for a print version, I’ll create one in the future! Thanks for writing!

Sasha says

Hey Jim! Congrats on your fist book. Would you say it would be helpful for someone dealing with lots of econometrics? I would definitely appreciate some intuitive explanations for penalized linear regression methods, logistic regression interpretations and so on… 🙂 Thank you!

Jim Frost says

Hi Sasha, thank you! It is good for someone who is studying econometrics. In fact, going way back, my first experience with regression was in an econometrics class. However, I do not cover penalized linear models as that is more of an advance method. I do include an example of binary logistic regression, but not in-depth. Perhaps I can cover those more advanced topics in the a followup book!

Leonard says

Awesome! I can’t wait to read this book. I’ve been waiting for you to write a book for a long time now. You are, hands down, the best stats teacher I’ve ever come across. Where were you when I was struggling with this subject in university?!

Jim Frost says

Hi Leonard, thank you so much! Your kind words made my day! I hope you enjoy the book!

Jiri says

Dear Jim,

I’ve bought your book, at least as a support of your work that you are doing here on this website. Your posts are very useful and provide me answers that I cannot find in any books about regression analysis.

Best wishes,

Jiri

Jim Frost says

Hi Jiri, Thank you so much! I appreciate that tremendously! 🙂

Ciro A. Sanchez says

Hi Jim,

Congrats!!!

Jim Frost says

Thank you, Ciro!!

Eric says

First, congratulations!

Secondly, can users of other software find benefit from using your book to grasp the concepts and contents ?

Jim Frost says

Hi Eric,

Yes! The main goals of the book are to teach the concepts, best practices, model specification, interpretation, assumptions, problem solving, avoiding common traps, and so on for regression analysis. In short, I want readers to learn the

skillsfor using regression. These goals all apply to regression analysis regardless of the statistical software someone uses. One thing Idon’tdo is detail the procedures for performing all of this in Minitab. That’s not the focus. The Minitab output I show should be relatable to users of other statistical software packages. Lots of graphs. And output tables that are similar to other applications such as ANOVA, coefficients, goodness-of-fit, etc.In my book, I use the same approach that I use throughout my blog posts. So, those should give you a good idea of what to expect.

If there’s enough demand for a print version, I’ll create one in the future. It’ll involve a bunch of work on my part to get that ready.

Howard says

Hello Jim.

Please what kind of program do you use in this book to perform your Regression Analysis? I am hoping for STATA. ☺

Jim Frost says

Hi Howard,

I use Minitab throughout the book. I do like the idea of creating companion books for different software packages.
