'There are many outstanding statistics textbooks. This book stands alone in its extensive and in-depth treatment of fundamentals, followed by the well-designed, pedagogical exercises. The rewards of going through the book are immense for anyone serious about learning statistics. It can also serve as an excellent reference for advanced students and researchers.'
Cheng Hsiao - University of Southern California
'This book valiantly presents core statistical methodology in a self-contained volume of key ideas and solved exercises. The exposition is concise yet crystal clear with a format that successfully targets two audiences, by being accessible to statistical newcomers with some mathematics background, and by its appeal to the statistically proficient. Even people who teach statistics for a living may find themselves captivated by opening the book at a random page and reading on for pleasure. It is a treasure trove of statistical gems.'
Dimitris Politis - University of California, San Diego
'This vast, 801-page volume presents an extensive survey of mathematical statistics that will be useful to readers with various technical backgrounds. In this respect it caters for both students and researchers. The volume is oriented towards an econometric readership, but should be useful to statisticians also. It is clearly and precisely written and there are solutions provided to the many exercises.'
Peter M. Robinson - London School of Economics
'This impressive new addition to the Econometric Exercises series will be a wonderful resource for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students. The clarity with which all concepts and techniques are presented and linked, is marvellous. The use of concise introductory material to lay the foundations of each chapter, followed by an extensive set of solved exercises, also works seamlessly. I will recommend it highly to all!'
