Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(7), 577–578. Reviews the book, Outliers in Statistical Data by Vic Barnett and Toby Lewis (1978). The aims of the authors are to provide a review of the outlier field at two levels to survey the existing state of knowledge (the extensive bibliography includes a few 1978 references) and to present details of selected procedures. The reviewer believes that this text will serve the practitioner quite well since the extensive listings of methods are conveniently organized. In summary, this is a very useful book that belongs on the shelves of applied statisticians. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
