About the author (1995)

Neil A. Weiss received his Ph.D. from UCLA in 1970 and subsequently accepted an assistant-professor position at Arizona State University (ASU), where he was ultimately promoted to the rank of full professor. Dr. Weiss has taught statistics, probability, and mathematics--from the freshman level to the advanced graduate level--for more than 30 years. In recognition of his excellence in teaching, he received the "Dean's Quality Teaching Award "from the ASU College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Dr. Weiss' comprehensive knowledge and experience ensures that his texts are mathematically and statistically accurate, as well as pedagogically sound. In addition to his numerous research publications, Dr. Weiss is the author of "A Course in Probability "(Addison-Wesley, 2006). He has also authored or coauthored books in finite mathematics, statistics, and real analysis, and is currently working on a new book on applied regression analysis and the analysis of variance. His texts--well known for their precision, readability, and pedagogical excellence--are used worldwide. Dr. Weiss is a pioneer of the integration of statistical software into textbooks and the classroom, first providing such integration over 20 years ago in the book "Introductory Statistics "(Addison-Wesley, 1982). Weiss and Addison-Wesley continue that pioneering spirit to this day with the inclusion of some of the most comprehensive Web sites in the field. In his spare time, Dr. Weiss enjoys walking, studying and practicing meditation, and playing hold 'em poker. He is married and has two sons.
