Review quote

`This book ... is one of the best introductions to geostatistics. It is a perfect balance between theory and methodological considerations. ... Even the more experienced geostatisticians will read it with great pleasure and will find for it a very special place on their bookshelf. It is the kind of book that you enjoy recommending to anyone who wants a good starting point in a field. ... I very stronly recommend this book to anyone who wants to have an introductive, consistent and unbiased view of geostatistics, a discipline that urgently needs young and enthusiastic scientists with a fresh view of the problems. In this sense, this book should help us a lot, at least as much as it will help them.'
P. Bogaert in Stochastic Environmental Research and Risk Assessment, 14 (2000)
'This book should be seriously considered for adoption in a graduate level course on geostatistics. Moreover, this book would make a valuable addition to any library on spatial analysis.'
Mathematical Geology, July (2002)
