"...this textbook would be ideal." (The American Statistician, February 2006) "This is really a statistics textbook written explicitly for undergraduate computer science majors...I found the numerous examples of the use of statistics within the field of computer science extremely informative." (Technometrics, November 2004) "Thorough, in-depth, relatively complete and rigorous introduction to the statistics a CS professional should know." (American Mathematical Monthly, August 2004) "This is a rigorous introductory text in probability and statistics, which also develops in a rigorous fashion all the necessary supporting mathematics beyond calculus and algebra." (Mathematical Reviews, issue 2004i) " resource...proves an ideal resource for computer science students and practitioners interested in a probability study..." (Zentralblatt Math, Vol. 1027, 2004) ...presents introductory topics in probability and statistics with particular emphasis on concepts that arise in computer science...disguised also by the feature that it develops all necessary supporting mathematics in a thorough and rigorous fashion. (Quarterly of Applied Mathematics, Vol. LXI, No. 4, December 2003)
