Bootstrap Methods and their Application
A. C. Davison, ?cole Polytechnique F?d?rale, Lausanne D. V. Hinkley, University of California, Santa Barbara

Quantile Regression
Roger Koenker, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

'? well written and easy to read, with useful illustrations of important aspects of quantile regression. It is obvious that the author knows the subject inside out, giving an up-to-date, exhaustive account of the subject. ? The book is a valuable contribution to the statistical literature, and a must have for every statistician or econometrician interested in quantile regression methods.' Journal of the Royal Statistical Society

Statistical Analysis of Stochastic Processes in Time J. K. Lindsey, Universit? de Li?ge, Belgium

'This book is an extraordinary piece of literature ? It is simply a masterpiece and even the most experienced statistician will learn a thing or two from this text. ? It is more than a mere cookery book type of statistical commands, output and interpretation but, rather, a deep understanding and appreciation of the statistical thinking process. ? The book is well written and would be good reading for applied statisticians as well as all post-graduate and faculty members who interact with data. Libraries should purchase a copy.' Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Series A

Statistical Models
A. C. Davison, ?cole Polytechnique F?d?rale, Lausanne

?? an almost encyclopaedic survey of modern parametric statistics. In my view this mammoth and scholarly undertaking invites comparison with Kendall's original Advanced Theory of Statistics, providing as it does a snapshot of the discipline at the present time. Anybody who is seriously involved in the theory or practice of statistics would be well advised to ensure that they have access to a copy.? Short Book Reviews
*Blends theory and practice to give a useful general discussion of
statistical modelling
*Unrivalled coverage of major modern statistical methodologies
*Many problems, with practical exercises based on the S language at the
end of each chapter
