'This is a very readable and absorbing book. It documents the fundamental influence which Gosset had on the development of modern statistics through his collaboration wiht Fisher and the Pearsons. But above all, it portrays a practical scientist and manager with an endearing personality who was modest, kindly, and tolerant; a man with wide interests and real integrity. Professors Plackett and Barnard are to be greatly thanked for bringing Pearson's planned
biography to fruition. This book is for anyone with any interest in the history and development of our subject and in the personalities of the major players in that remarkable era.'
C.D. Kemp, University of St. Andrews, Biometrics, March 1992
