Excellent SEM book for students/academics. Provides detailed explanations of the consensus (and controversy) of state of the art structural equation modeling techniques. Kline's book uses plain language to communicate complex issues in applying SEM to research questions. Very helpful in answering reviewers/referees questions in the publication process. Minus 1 star for lack of MPLUS syntax addressing model comparisons.

Yeah that's right.
I'm actually really excited to re-read this book. This guy is a great writer when it comes to this stuff. I think this is a wonderfully powerful tool for gaining insight into how the world works.
This is where stats is going. If you're getting a degree in this stuff, read this.
