"The authors are to be congratulated for providing consulting statisticians and advanced students of statistics with an excellent guide to the rich methodology now available. Every statistician will benefit from having this book on their shelf, or, better yet, on their desk." (Australian & New Zealand Journal of Statistics, 2011)

"All treated methods are illustrated with several data examples. These data examples show clearly the superiority of the robust methods compared with the classical methods... However, since there exists a website with instructions for running the data examples of this book, the new robust methods can be easily applied." (Biometrical Journal, February 2011)"The book by Heritier et al. is the most comprehensive and practical discussion of robust methods to date. The combination of a summary of robust methods, extensive discussion of applications, and accompanying R code give this book the potential to increase the use of robust methods in practice." (Journal of Biopharmaceutical Statistics, March 2010)
