Observed Confidence Levels
Theory and Application
… The text is at a Ph.D. level because of the asymptotic theory, but many of the ideas are simple and may be of great use. The text is useful for researchers who want to learn about observed confidence levels, and the topic of observed confidence levels would be a useful addition to a course on resampling methods such as the bootstrap. … The website (www.math.niu.edu/~polansky/oclbook/) contains R functions and data sets.

…The breadth of real examples that the author provides certainly demonstrates that this is a class of techniques worth considering.

…In summary, the book was written with the objectives of educating the reader on the mechanics, general theory, practical implementation, and potential uses of observed confidence as a new approach to multiple testing. In my opinion the book delivers on these. Observed confidence is laid out, but not oversold, which I also appreciated … I was impressed by both the text and the testing method.
