The 2nd Edition of Dr. Winkler's classic book, first published in 1972, includes access to electronic files, Perspectives, and updated material. However, the basic concepts of Bayesian inference and decision have not really changed. This book gives a foundation in the concepts, enables readers to understand the results of Bayesian inference and decision, provides tools to model real-world problems and carry out basic analyses, and prepares readers for further exploration.
Please note that the material the publisher used to provide on an accompanying CD is now available from the publisher's web site and the CD is no longer provided.

Three years ago at a Decision Analysis Affinity Group conference (DAAG), a panel of experts was asked, "What is the best book on Bayesian probability?" The answer from the panel was united, "Bob Winkler's book...but it is out of print." We're very pleased to be able to provide the 2nd edition of this significant work!From the Author:
(From the Preface) This book is intended as an introduction to statistical inference and decision from a Bayesian viewpoint. The empahsis is largely conceptual; although specific classes of situations are considered, the primary objective is to present a general framework for handling problems of statistical inference and decision and to develop an appreciation for the basic concepts and the theory underlying this framework.
