Full disclosure: I am the author's brother.

However, I think this is a really great book. The examples cover real world problems like effectiveness of charter schools, benefits/costs of universal health insurance, benefits of additional schooling to name a few. The explanations in the main part of the chapter are clear and not too technical (the technical stuff is put in the appendices).

Best econometrics book I've read (I've read about 4 others...)

Livrinho bem interessante e agradável que intercala casos ilustrativos com explicação dos métodos que são utilizados em econometria. Cada capítulo tem um apêndice técnico bem explicado e rigoroso. Boa leitura, pelo menos para mim que não tenho familiaridade com econometria.
