Prediction Revisited is a delightfully nonlinear romp through the basics of linear statistical inference. Its stated goal is to reframe the subject with a relevance-weighted approach. But there’s a second goal: to emulate the singer Mark Anthony.

Czasonis, Kritzman and Turkington (CKT hereafter) also seek a crossover hit, moving back and forth between mathematical exposition and conceptual English-based exposition.
