I find this book extremely well written, for me I managed to get though a degree in Maths without doing any Statistics and I have found this a fantastic introduction to the area but also moving on to very interesting topics. What I really like is that the explanations and proofs are thorough and do not hand wave, but it's also possible to get the bigger picture just skimming though. When you get over bogged down in the proof and theory and the hands wave over your head in comes the power punch of this book, well prepared well laid out examples. In my opinion a damn good buy. I intend to read cover to cover and back again.
