"...an outstanding introduction to robust statistics, outlier detection and the bootstrap. There is, to my knowledge, no comparable book written at this level of accessibility." David Leblang, University of Colorado at Boulder.
"It is rather unique, this book. The message that the author aims to deliver is an important one. Most other textbooks aim to illustrate the standard story, using innovative illustrations or clearer exposition. So there is a lot of redundancy out there in statistics books. This book stands out as providing something new and clearly important." Sheila Kennison, Oklahoma State University
