From the reviews:
"This book gives an extensive description of many analysis pathways developed recently in fMRI data processing. The varied topics are described firstly in a very comprehensible fashion for non-statisticians. In addition, most of the explanations are supported by clear and accurate statistical justifications. Thus, statisticians will find in this book the scientific issues which readers are facing when analyzing fMRI data, and neuroscientists will find a summary of many different methods to tackle fMRI data exploration.... It is highly appreciated to be able to read such honest and thoughtful reflections of fMRI data analysis." (Archard, Journal of Statistical Software, January 2009, Vol. 29, Book Review 3).
"...I recommend this book. It serves as an overview of current statistics-related research in a field that is advancing rapidly and is both scientifically and technologically very complex, thereby filling a need that had not yet been met by any other book. The author cites widely from both statistical and neuroimaging literature (284 references total)... . The author states that her goal for this book was `to provide an introduction to functional magenetic resonance imaging, aimed at statisticians, that would highlight the important scientific issues and survey the common...analysis pathways' (p. VIII). The author has in large part done a very commendable job of attaining this goal." ( Journal of the American Statistical Association, Dec. 2009, Vol. 104, No. 488)
"This book attempts to provide an easy-to-read introduction to fMRI from a statistician's perspective. ... this book does a good job in providing a basic introduction to fMRI for the statistician who is willing to learn about an area where his/her services are actively sought and needed." (Ranjan Maitra, Technometrics, Vol. 53 (2), May, 2011)
