    This book is a wonderful resource for understanding the broader contours of credit scoring. It also provides in-dept discussion on the techniques. It is a significant contribution given there is dearth of public material on credit scoring. Moreover, it is contextualized with respect to Indian banking sector. It is very useful for practitioners and academicians.
