Reviews

From the reviews:

"By selecting such a wide range of topics, the Editors provide an excellent source of information on many interesting statistical issues, and a valuable reminder of the value of statistical thinking to a wide variety of important problems." S.W. Lagakos for Short Book Reviews of the ISI, December 2006

"Frederick Mosteller (FM), an eminent and inspiring statistician, was still an active researcher in his 90th year of life … . I remain certain that most Technometrics readers … will benefit from this fine collection of FM papers spanning six decades. I must congratulate the editors for doing a fine job … . I believe this volume will be a welcome addition to the library/desk of any academic and professional statistician, and will be beneficial to the next generation of statisticians!" (Technometrics, Vol. 49 (2), 2007)
