Editorial Reviews


Quite simply, this book is a masterwork. ... an essential resource for anyone who models data, or creates applications which require reference to, or make use of, statistical distribution functions or random variable sampling/generation. The accompanying PC program is a true application in its own right, neat, tidy, and very, very useful. To have this and the book represents a unique reference work. ... easily understandable by undergraduate as well as graduate scientists and statisticians ... an essential part of the toolkit for professionals working in the quantitative sciences ... a remarkable achievement for the author who so obviously has taken great care over many years to assemble and perfect the software and reference work. This is a book worthy of a prize.
     — Paul Barrett, University of Auckland, New Zealand

…it seems indeed that the book has a chance of becoming a highly valued practitioner’s reference … .
     — Journal of the Royal Statistical Society

I recommend the StatCalc software as a useful quick way to obtain and/or check (relative) simple statistical calculations, and the book as its accompanying manual . . . many statisticians might find StatCalc a handy addition to their computer desktops, particularly (in my case) with teaching in mind!
     —  M.C. Jones, Open University, in Journal of Applied Statistics, Jan. 2008, Vol. 35, No. 2

In summary, this book can be recommended to statistical practitioners who need a comprehensive yet brief reference on statistical distributions with applications.
     — Brian Wiens, Gilead Sciences, Inc., in The American Statistician, Nov.2007, Vol. 61, No. 4
