Since the book “Introduction to the Theory and Practice of Sampling” was published in February 2020, there has been overwhelmingly positive reaction from many readers.
During the corona pandemic, most in-person meetings, seminars and courses have been impossible. As a consequence, many readers reached out by phone and e-mail, asking for clarification of certain topics in the book, in order to take full advantage of its benefits for their specific industry and business. These encounters, via phone, Skype, Teams, Zoom have been very instructive and valuable for all stakeholders.
