"This book is comprehensive in coverage and insightful in presentation. It would be very useful to practitioners (for both training and reference purposes) because of the inclusion of realistic examples and case studies. The treatment of data analysis techniques is at the right level - not too mathematical for non-theoreticians yet not without the necessary rigor."
-T.N. Goh, National University of Singapore
