    A draft of Watanabe’s book was ready just in time for the 2008 Oberwolfach Seminar on Algebraic Statistics. The author of this review received it the night before the workshop by e-mail from the organizers and was charged with printing it in time to be discussed in the hands-on sessions. These discussions influenced [3, Chap. 5].
