"It is the best book on applied econometrics on the market. Well written and "modern" in the sense that he devotes coverage to topics and techniques relevant to the current state of practice in econometrics."
"Hands down, the data analysis examples in the text and the practice problems are what I like most about the text. They are fantastic, and many of our Economics students list Econometrics as their favorite course because these problems allow them to apply economic reasoning to actual data."
