Even though I found the examples very informative, if you're looking for a McGraw-Hill type of university textbook that provides step-by-step examples in every single topic, this book may not be right for you.
All methods used are in time domain. They include straightforward regression, exponential smoothing, ARIMA models and dynamic regression models popular in economics. The focus is on finding a suitable description of a time series and interpreting results.
There is a chapter on advanced methods which is a bit superfluous. The main gap in the text is spectral analysis is not covered. However, this means that the mathematics and statistics involved is relatively easy. This book is an ideal introductory text suited to business, economics and applied science students.
My opinion - just right for statisticians/analysts of all levels of ability and interest!
