From the reviews: "The Art of Semiparametrics is a collection of 10 edited chapters with 33 figures and 11 tables. ... This special collection of selected articles nicely blends the theoretical results with applied statistics and empirical studies ... . Almost all of the chapters are clear and well written ... . I find this diverse collection an interesting one. Researchers and practitioners interested in the latest research in semiparametric statistics may find this volume to be an appealing collection of papers to add to their library."
