'This is a well done introduction to both classical and modern time series models and techniques. Throughout, the authors have managed to keep a sound balance between mathematical rigor (which is always present, but never emphasized or celebrated for its own sake) and user-friendliness of presentation. I found this mixture very easy to digest. Another strong point of the book is its technical competence. In almost every line, one feels that two of the most brilliant present-day theoretical econometricians are at work. Review in Statistical Papers
