From the reviews: "PhD level students, and researchers and practitioners in statistical learning and machine learning. ... text assumes a thorough training in undergraduate statistics and mathematics. Computed examples that include R code are scattered through the text. There are numerous exercises, many with commentary that sets out guidelines for exploration. ... The over-riding reason for staying with the independent, symmetric unimodal error model is surely that no one book can cover everything! Within these bounds, this book gives a careful treatment that is encyclopedic in its scope." (John H. Maindonald, International Statistical Review, Vol. 79 (1), 2011) "It is an appropriate textbook for a PhD level course and can also be used as a reference or for independent reading. ... an excellent resource for researchers and students interested in DMML. ... the authors have done an outstanding job of covering important topics and providing relevant statistical theory and computational resources. I can see myself teaching a statistical learning class using this book and comfortably recommend it to any researcher with a solid mathematical background who wants to be engaged in this field." (Jeongyoun Ahn, Journal of the American Statistical Association, Vol. 106 (493), March, 2011)
