"The book addresses professional and academic statisticians, offering a non-standard look [at] statistics, tracing its roots and major developments, and deriving easy-to-apply methods. ...Different groups of readers are likely to benefits from this handbook. For those interested in the theory, Part II explains its details. For readers only interested in the applications, Part II can be skipped without hampering the overall understanding of the approach. The book is easy to read, the language is clear and extensive. ...The theoretical details are given with mathematical rigour assuming a basic mathematical background from the reader. Erudite accounts of the historical aspects of stochastics and the enlightening debates on some controversial viewpoints add to the handbook's appeal."
