“Everyone who is engaged in or considering work in mobile sensing surely will benefit from a careful review of this book. The volume provides thorough discussions of privacy, reproducibility, the conduct of research, and ethics. Chapters richly describe passive sensing modalities, analytic methods, and applications, with an emphasis on psychological science. Valuable features include considerations for defining summary variables, reviews of mobile sensing devices and apps, instructions for preprocessing data, and examples to illustrate points. Importantly, the strengths and limitations of mobile sensing research are highlighted.”

—Arthur A. Stone, PhD, Department of Psychology and Director, Dornsife Center for Self-Report Science, University of Southern California

“Mobile sensing is set to transform the field of psychology. This volume, with its readable and practical chapters on every important element of mobile sensing research, is an essential companion for anyone doing work in this area. Broad in scope and authoritative in content, this is the one book you need, whether you are a graduate student just starting your first mobile sensing study or an experienced researcher seeking to improve your designs, methods, and analyses.”

—Samuel D. Gosling, PhD, Department of Psychology, The University of Texas at Austin

“With contributions from leading scholars and practitioners from around the world, the book covers a wide range of topics, including how to collect mobile sensing data, how to analyze the data, and applications in specific fields, such as aging, close relationships, emotion detection, and cognitive assessment. This comprehensive, single-volume source is a 'must' for those seeking to explore the vast potential of mobile sensing.”

—Niall Bolger, PhD, Department of Psychology, Columbia University

“This wide-ranging volume from well-respected editors and contributors provides an impressive 'one-stop shop' for researchers interested in mobile sensing research. The book offers primers on the background and key concepts of mobile sensing, data acquisition and analysis, and applications in specific domains. I have no doubt that this book will serve as a tremendous fount of guidance and inspiration for the next generation of mobile sensing researchers.”
