1 Review
The latest edition of this very successful and authoritative set of tables, first published in 1984, still benefits from clear typesetting, which makes the figures easy to read and use, but has been improved by the addition of new tables. These give Bayesian confidence limits for the binomial and Poisson distributions, and for the square of the multiple correlation coefficient, which have not been previously available. The intervals are the shortest possible, consistent with the requirement on probability. The authors have taken great care to ensure the clarity of the tables and how their values may be used; the tables are easily interpolated. The book contains all the tables likely to be required for elementary statistical methods in the social, business and natural sciences, and will be an essential aid for teachers, users and students in these areas.

DENNIS V. LINDLEY is Professor Emeritus of Statistics, and past Head of Department, at University College London (UK). He has played a leading role in putting Bayesian statistics back on the modern statistical map. He has published over 100 original and significant scholarly articles, as well as several books, that are all delightfully written and full of insights. He is a founding organizer and former president of the celebrated Valencia International Meetings on Bayesian Statistics, the 2002 meeting of which was dedicated in his honor.
