"Typical of Efron's work, the book presents fresh ideas, charts new ground, and lays an impressive theory, much of which he developed single-handedly.... We can expect a superb learning experience from Efron, and his pedagogical style delivers. The book is written carefully and thoughtfully, with ample mathematical detail to make the concepts clear. Abundant examples of specific data analyses and simulation studies supplement the mathematical theory, making his points crystal clear. The book is chock full of eye-catching and informative color graphics, and thus is not at all dry. Software (in R) sources are identified so that readers can easily perform the analyses. The technical details and examples are interspersed with "exercises" embedded directly in the text, so that readers can test their knowledge on what they just read in "just-in-time" fashion, rather than waiting to the end of the chapter. The problems are not too difficult. I tried some and gained confidence that I had learned something. Thus, the book will serve well as both a reference book, in which the exercises assist the reader in learning, and as a textbook for a graduate seminar course, where the exercises can be assigned as homework problems."
Peter Westfall, Journal of the American Statistical Association
