The latest edition of this very successful and authoritative set of tables, first published in 1984, still benefits from clear typesetting, which makes the figures easy to read and use, but has been improved by the addition of new tables. These give Bayesian confidence limits for the binomial and Poisson distributions, and for the square of the multiple correlation coefficient, which have not been previously available. The intervals are the shortest possible, consistent with the requirement on probability. The authors have taken great care to ensure the clarity of the tables and how their values may be used; the tables are easily interpolated. The book contains all the tables likely to be required for elementary statistical methods in the social, business and natural sciences, and will be an essential aid for teachers, users and students in these areas.
