"Analysis of financial time series, third edition, is an ideal book for introductory courses on time series at the graduate level and a valuable supplement for statistics courses in time series at the upper-undergraduate level." (Mathematical Reviews, 2011)

"Nevertheless, all in all the book can be a very useful reference for students as well as for professionals." (Zentralblatt MATH, 2011)

"Factor models, an important technique used in quantitative finance, are given a full treatment with macroeconomic factor models and fundamental factor models.
The coverage of the book is comprehensive. It starts from basic time series techniques and finishes with advanced concepts such as state space models and MCMC methods. There is a balance between the theoretical background necessary to appreciate the nuances and the practical aspect of implementation. More importantly it gives insights about what time series models can't address. The book has an excellent supporting website which has all the programs and data sets which helps to internalize the concepts. Finally, teaching professionals should find the solutions manual as a valuable tool to explain concepts and to ensure understanding." (, January 2011)

"This book provides a broad, mature, and systematic introduction to current financial econometric models and their applications to modeling and prediction of financial time series data. It utilizes real-world examples and real financial data throughout the book to apply the models and methods described." (Insurance News Net, 8 December 2010)
