Review:

The book is a must-buy if you use statistics in your classes or research. It can serve as a text or a reference work.
-JAMES J. OBRIEN, The Florida State University
I recommend this book, without hesitation, as either a reference or course text. I found the books range of topics, depth of treatment, and pedagogical style with relatively few exceptions appropriate for upper-division undergraduates and beginning graduate students...Wilks excellent book provides a thorough base in applied statistical methods for atmospheric scientists. I hope its availability will encourage university atmospheric programs to provide all of their degree candidates with a treatment of this important subject that is as broad and in-depth as that provided by Wilks at Cornell.
--Robert E. Livezey, National Centers fo Environmental Prediction, in BULLETIN OF THE AMS
It combines a clear introduction of both fundamentals and advanced applications with many examples of how they can be used. It could be used as an effective teaching tool at both the undergraduate and graduate level. A book of this type was needed.
-DENNIS L. HARTMANN, University of Washington
Wilks has produced such a 'suitable replacement and I recommend his book, without hesitation, as either a reference or course text....Wilks excellent book provides a thorough base in applied statistical methods for atmospheric scientists. I hope its availability will encourage university atmospheric science programs to provide all of their degree candidates with a treatment of this important subject that is as broad and in-depth as that provided by Wilks at Cornell.
Robert E. Livezey, Climate Prediction Center of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations National Centers for Environmental Prediction, Camp Springs, Maryland, in BULLETIN OF AMERICAN METEOROLOGY SOCIETY
The presentation is very readable and the material accurately presented.
