Reviews - What do customers think about Statistical Tools for Finance and Insurance?

Statistical Tools for Finance and Insurance  Aug 23, 2008
This book reads quite well with examples from the authors own work. It complements the online version of the book. The authors provide working examples using XploRe a free software package for performing statistical languages.

There is an online version of the book with the example code for the XploRe software. The online book is free. I do not regret purchasing the paper book copy as it is easier to read.
