This book provides both an elementary and a modern introduction to the bootstrap for students who do not have an extensive background in advanced mathematics. It offers reliable, hands-on coverage of the bootstrap's considerable advantages -- as well as its drawbacks. The book outpaces the competition by skillfully presenting results on improved confidence set estimation, estimation of error rates in discriminant analysis, and applications to a wide variety of hypothesis testing and estimation problems. To alert readers to the limitations of the method, the book exhibits counterexamples to the consistency of bootstrap methods. The authors take great care to draw connections between the more traditional resampling methods and the bootstrap, oftentimes displaying helpful computer routines in R. Emphasis throughout the book is on the use of the bootstrap as an exploratory tool including its value in variable selection and other modeling environments.
