From the reviews of the second edition: "This is a well-written introduction to Bayesian Analysis that contains many applications to Geodesy and Engineering at the cutting edge of these topics. ... There is a good treatment of Bayesian Analysis of Linear Models ... . The references are very interesting ... by a group of scientists of whose work many of us in the Statistical profession may not be aware. The strength of the book lies in its coverage, careful mathematics and many contemporary applications." (Jayanta K. Ghosh, International Statistical Review, Vol. 76 (1), 2008)
