This book covers the aspects of digital design and essen I'm a computer engineer and when I was a freshman in college this was our introductory book. This book covers the aspects of digital design and essential components very well. Not only is the coverage great in this respect, but is very readable. I'm a tech head and, to be honest, I loved reading this book. No qualms about the authors' writing styles. The only issue I had with this book was with the HDL examples. The HDL examples were code with virtually no explanation. In my opinion, this is very useless considering it is an introductory book into the world of digital design and computer engineering. HDL is definitely not this books strong point, but for the fundamental concepts of digital design, it's a great book. I keep my copy on my bookshelf and don't plan on selling it....more

If you need to learn how to perform Bayesian statistics and understand it, then this is the book for you. I have been looking for a book like this forIf you need to learn how to perform Bayesian statistics and understand it, then this is the book for you. I have been looking for a book like this for 3 years. I get Bayes Rule, but when I tried plunging into Gelman's excellent book, it just assumed too much and I stumbled around. This book was slightly basic for me, but the examples and exercises have been just right for helping things to click for me....more

For if a textbook is a reflection of what an author knows about some subject, then Shao represents a treasure trove of knowledge that is so eloquently shared in this book. Anyone serious about doing graduate-level reasearch in statistics should invest a year of studying this book. But be forwarned that most likely one will find this, due to the onslaught of measure theoretic analysis, one of the more challenging books to makes its way on the book shelf. ...more
