"An important text and, in addition, is a joy to read, being a paragon of lucid and witty exposition."

"Full of appropriate examples (especially from genetics) and historical commentary, this monograph offers a rare simultaneous treatment of both mathematical and philosophical foundations."

"This book is commended to all philosophers of science who are interested in the problems of scientific inference."

"This book, by a well-known geneticist, will do much to publicize the generality of the likelihood method as a foundation for statistical procedure. It is both smoothly written and persuasive."

"The book is indeed a classic. Virtually every philosopher of science now writing about probabilistic inference has been influenced by Edwards' book, and his ideas are now as alive and relevant as they were when the book first appeared. Edwards is an absolutely seminal thinker in the foundations of statistics and scientific inference."
