This book should be of interest to statistics lecturers who want ready-made data sets complete with notes for teaching.


"A scan of the titles in the data structure index or the keywords in the subject index is a visit to an exotic bazaar, laden with fascinating trinkets from the storehouse of human curiosity and ingenuity. I cannot wait to use the book in my teaching."

-Short Book Reviews

"Statistics teachers often want a set of illustrative data and may resort to inventing an artificial data set. There is no longer any need to do this!…I suspect that me teachers will want to have their own copy of this book and there should certainly be a copy available in your library."

- Journal of the Royal Statistical Society

"Summing up, the Handbook of Small Data Sets is most welcome from a teaching as well as computational statistics point of view. The authors have to be congratulated on their idea and their effort to produce this volume and data disk. Also, the layout of the book is very satisfying. It should be on the shelf of most of us."
