```Greetings

I am very excited to announce that my newest book, "Interpreting and
Visualizing Regression Models Using Stata", is shipping. Taking
advantage of the -contrast-, -margins-, and -marginsplot- commands,
the book shows how you can use the features of Stata to interpret and

The heart of the book illustrates how to interpret interactions
through the liberal use of graphs created using the -marginsplot-
commands (the book contains nearly 200 figures). These visual
interpretive tools are tied to the regression coefficients, helping
you visualize (and visually interpret) your results. The book covers
nearly every conceivable kind of interaction... continuous by
continuous interactions, categorical by continuous, and categorical by
categorical, as well as three way interactions.

The book engages many seemingly complex kinds of interactions, showing
how the -margins-, -marginsplot- and -contrast- commands can make
sense of such interactions. Categorical by continuous interactions are
illustrated where the continuous variable is fit non-linearly (such as
using a quadratic term, or using a piecewise regression). The book
also includes extensive exploration of the -contrast- command to
interpret interactions among categorical predictors (including
interactions of three categorical variables).

The book is not limited to just ordinary regression, covering also
models with repeated time points (e.g., repeated measures designs,
time series), multilevel models, non-linear models (e.g., -logit-,
-mlogit-), as well as data collected using complex surveys.
