The book describes the use of smoothing techniques in statistics, with an emphasis on applications rather than on detailed theory. The text makes extensive reference to S-Plus, as a computing environment in which examples can be explored. S-Plus functions and example scripts are provided to implement many of the techniques described. However, the book is of interest even to readers that do not use S-Plus, since the scripts are only a complement to the main body of
text.

Scientific Computing World, April 1998 ...a well-written book that fills an obvious gap in the statistics literature...a pragmatic introduction to the application of smoothing methods. The book's layout and structure are well designed and its language lucid. Examples are drawn from a range of disciplines and should appeal to a broad readership...Statisticians, who are familiar with applied non-parametric smoothing through programmed uncertainty estimates may want to check this book anyway for the odd
trick they may have missed. For anyone who lacks one or more of those elements, and is involved in any way with data analysis, it is an excellent buy.

N. Veraverbeke, Short Book Reviews, August 1998 This must be a very attractive book: when it was lying on my desk while preparing this review, it constantly taken away by students and colleagues who were attracted by the topic and the nice presentation with graphics, examples, S-Plus material, etc....A glance at the more than two-hundred references reveals that most of them date from the nineties and hence it becomes clear that this is an up-to-date book with the most recent state of the art.

There is a rich choice of examples, exercises, hints for further reading and S-Plus illustrations. Compared to the several other recent books in the area, the present monograph has the advantage of being introductory and practcial within a very reasonable number of pages.
