This article attempts to introduce readers with the concept and methodology of bootstrap in statistics, which is placed under a larger umbrella of resampling. Major portion of the discussions should be accessible to any one who has had a couple of college-level-applied statistics courses. Toward the end, we attempt to provide glimpses of the vast literature published on the topic, which should be helpful to someone aspiring to go into the depth of the methodology. A section is dedicated to illustrate real data examples. We think that the selected set of references cover the greater part of the developments on this subject matter.
