excellent and practical text on nonlinear regression
Along with Gallant's book on nonlinear regression this book is one of the best. It is on an intermediate level and assumes some knowledge of linear regression. Notable unique aspects of the book are (1) good use of geometry, (2) discussion of derivative free methods, (3) use of profile likelihood and profile t plots and (4) measures of degree of nonlinearity of the problem. The authors also provide many real world applications directly from their consulting experience.

These authors were among the researchers that developed these measures of nonlinearity and so that aspect of the book is original and is emphasized in this book more than in others such as Gallant's.
