This book treats in a critical way one of the most frequented topics in Econometrics, Regression Analysis. This topic is built over a set of assumptions that are hardly fulfilled when we approach data. Although Richard A. Berk points out the problems with regression analysis from a theoretical point of view, the book is still relevant to address and assess the principal concerns related to the empirical application of regression methods.
In general, econometric textbooks minimize the hard questions referring to the weaknesses of the methods they present. This book is a good treatise of the main concerns about why linear regression is not only a science but also an art.
