"An excellent source for professionals in the field, this is really more a handbook than an encyclopedia. The material presented is of high quality. ... Many of the articles are easily understandable by a layperson. This work will be a valuable addition for all collections emphasizing mathematical statistics and for most large academic and public libraries. Recommended." (Choice, February 2009)
