'illuminating ... a book for researchers who understand well the
basic mechanics of event-history models and want to fine-tune their
skills by reading what those working on the cutting edge of
hazard-rate modeling have to say.'

`this is a well done, solid book and I recommend it to those teaching a course in elementary methods for the analysis of event history'
