“Modeling Discrete Time-to-Event Data provides an excellent overview of a field that is underrepresented in the literature. At what it aims to do, striking a balance between theory and practice, this book does a great job. Its readers will understand not only what to do, but also how to do it. I believe that this book can easily find a place on the shelf of statisticians who have an interest in survival analysis.” (Theodor Adrian Balan, Biometrical Journal, Vol. 61 (1), January, 2019)
