Amidst this gloomy scenario, the book…instantly qualifies as a valuable addition. The author attempts to introduce quantitative techniques and familiarise readers with their application in the development sector. The task is laudable and the outcome, admirable….For those…who are eager to acquaint themselves with basic quantitative techniques, this book is a useful source.
