Abstract

Discovery generally means becoming aware of something previously unknown. It would surprise me greatly if anyone who encountered George Box, either for the first time or on a later occasion, did not experience a genuine sense of discovery. He was one of the most creative and insightful people I have ever met, and thanks to him, my career during the 52 years since our first meeting has been a wonderful journey of personal discovery.
