"The writing style is exceptionally clear; also in the more advanced portion, I haven't any reservations about use. It is a much more professional and modern text than ours. I would seriously consider adopting the text if I teach it again and shall suggest it to my colleagues." -- Walter Freiberger, Brown University "The Hogg/McKean/Craig revision stands out as a modernized version of Hogg and Craig. This revision enhances considerably the statistical inference part with discussion of new procedures and methods, and puts in perspective a broad array of modern statistical methods." -- Hosam Mahmoud, George Washington University
