Media reviews

The book will be appreciated by graduates, Ph-D students and professional statisticians as a tool that provides a comprehensive treatment of the statistical theory with an emphasis on application. Wide range of case studies and a gentle self-contained presentation of GLIM4 complete the monograph as an extremely useful publication. EMS Newsletter ...there is much practical advice, many well-worked examples, and ample GLIM4 code and output. Thomas M. Loughin, BIOMETRICS
