I would like to use matlab to build a logistic regression model which includes both categorical and continuous predictors. But first of all, I would like to figure out the comprehensive theory(the assumptions, analysis, etc) behind such model. Could anyone please suggest the best reference book for logistic regression model. I got some background in linear regression analysis.

Hosmer and Lemeshow's (later eds. also Sturdivant) Applied Logistic Regression

I cannot say that it is the best book though, because I have not read others on logistic regression. It think it is a standard work though.
