! a very modern entry to the field of time-series modelling, with a rich reference list of the current literature, including 85 references from 2008 and later. It is well-written and I spotted very few typos. This textbook can undoubtedly work as a reference manual for anyone entering the field or looking for an update. ! I am certain there is more than enough material within Time Series to fill an intense one-semester course. --International Statistical Review (2011), 79
