- Short Book Reviews of the ISI
I learned nonparametric statistics ... from the first author's original version of the book. Having enjoyed that experience, I have unabashedly promoted this book ever since. The 4E is another very impressive updating of a classic text that should be part of every statistician's library. ... More than 100 pages have been added to the book. ... [T]he authors have generally rewritten and enhanced a lot of the material. Now, in its fourth edition, this book offers a very comprehensive and integrated presentation on nonparametric inference. ... There is no competitor for this book and its comprehensive development and application of nonparametric methods. Users of one of the earlier editions should certainly consider upgrading to this new edition.
