This textbook is an introduction to both the theory of statistical models with general linear models and the practical implementation of these analytical techniques using a widely available computer package, GLIM (Generalized Linear Interactive Modelling). The authors fully integrate the
theoretical and practical aspects, illustrating statistical principles by worked examples using GLIM's extensive interactive facilities. Statisticians working in a wide range of fields including biomedical research and the social sciences will find this an invaluable desktop companion to their
statistical modelling. It also provides a hands-on guide for advanced students in these areas who may be using the techniques for the first time.
