Excellent treatment of uncertainty concepts that are typically handled in only a cursory way in other text. Least-Squares Fitting concepts clear and usable. The only way to improve would be to include spreadsheet implementation of the concepts and a PART III concering distribution analysis. Excellent text - Get it.
