Probability for Statisticians is intended as a text for a one year graduate course aimed especially at students in statistics. The choice of examples illustrates this intention clearly. The material to be presented in the classroom constitutes a bit more than half the text, and the choices the author makes at the University of Washington in Seattle are spelled out. The rest of the text provides background, offers different routes that could be pursued in the classroom, ad offers additional material that is appropriate for self-study. Of particular interest is a presentation of the major central limit theorems via Stein's method either prior to or alternative to a characteristic funcion presentation. Additionally, there is considerable emphasis placed on the quantile function as well as the distribution function. The bootstrap and trimming are both presented. The martingale coverage includes coverage of censored data martingales. The text includes measure theoretic preliminaries, from which the authors own course typically includes selected coverage.
