Jay Devore received a B.S. in Engineering Science from the University of California, Berkeley, and a Ph.D. in Statistics from Stanford University. He previously taught at the University of Florida and Oberlin College, and has had visiting positions at Stanford, Harvard, the University of Washington, New York University, and Columbia. He has been at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, since 1977, where he was chair of the Department of Statistics for seven years and recently achieved the exalted status of Professor Emeritus.

Jay has previously authored or coauthored five other books, including Probability and Statistics for Engineering and the Sciences, which won a McGuffey Longevity Award from the Text and Academic Authors Association for demonstrated excellence over time . He is a Fellow of the American Statistical Association, has been an associate editor for both the Journal of the American Statistical Association and The American Statistician, and received the Distinguished Teaching Award from Cal Poly in 1991. His recreational interests include reading, playing tennis, traveling, and cooking and eating good food.

Ken Berk has a B.S. in Physics from Carnegie Tech (now Carnegie Mellon) and a Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Minnesota. He is Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at Illinois State University and a Fellow of the American Statistical As­sociation. He founded the Software Reviews section of The American Statistician and edited it for six years. He served as secretary/treasurer, program chair, and chair of the Statistical Computing Section of the American Statistical Association, and he twice co-chaired the Interface Symposium, the main annual meeting in statistical computing. His published work includes papers on time series, statistical computing, regression analysis, and statistical graphics, as well as the book Data Analysis with Microsoft Excel (with Patrick Carey).
