Editorial Reviews

Journal of the American Statistical Association - Ben Alamar
The book's strength lies in its complete presentation, up to this point, of the research in this area, and identification of the central areas of the problem (selection and sample data) that make the problem challenging. In addition, and perhaps most importantly, the book unites relevant research in a coherent and logical way that will serve interested researchers well.
