Headrick’s book is a valuable addition to the simulation world in the sense that it is the first systematic book on power method polynomials … this book has potential to be one of the key sources for researchers who are involved in random number generation and Monte Carlo studies. … it can serve and seems to be designed as a supplemental text in graduate level simulation- and computation-oriented courses. … Mathematica functions are provided throughout the book, which is a nice feature … Headrick’s book is a fairly major contribution to the literature … . I would highly recommend this book to anyone who deals with random number generation and more generally with Monte Carlo simulation and statistical computing.

This interesting monograph concerns the use of power method polynomials in the context of simulating univariate and multivariate nonnormal distributions with given cumulant and correlation structure. Its strength is in the fact that the power method, g-and-h transformations and GLD transformations are capable of simulation multivariate nonnormal continuous distributions specified by its cumulants and correlation matrices. … —Zentralblatt MATH 1187
