"...well-illustrated examples..." Sociological Methods and Research
"The number and diversity of examples greatly enhance the understanding of the text. We marvel at the number of resamples that were taken in support of the book! The authors use hundreds of plots and dozens of tables to demonstrate and evaluate the uses of bootstrap... Statisticians with little or no familiarity with the bootstrap will find Bootstrap Methods and Their Application to be a thorough introduction to its use in solving real-world problems...We recommend this book most highly. It made us stop and think regularly and contributed tremendously to our understanding of the bootstrap. It is an excellent book for professors, students, practicioners, and researchers alike." Thomas Loughin and Christopher R. Bilder, Journal of the American Statistical Association
"...a comprehensive and extremely readable overview of the current state of art in bootstrap methodology. Through the numerous exercises, practicals and examples the reader obtains a good understanding for the strength of bootstrap methods, the problems for which they work and how to avoid their pitfalls. I strongly recommend this book to anybody who uses, or wishes to use, bootstrap methods...this book should be part of your library." The University of Adelaide
"The authors have done an excellent job of mixing up the theory and the applications of bootstrap...Every applied statistician who wants to apply bootstrap with some knowledge of the underlined theory so that it is not applied improperly should take a look at this book." Technometrics
The bootstrap technique is a powerful and modern tool used in the analysis of statistical data. This book is the first that is aimed at users of the method. It describes many examples, and includes programs in S-plus, available on a disk supplied with the book, for practical use.
