# Probability theory required for learning statistics rigorously

I would like to learn statistics rigorously. The only book that I can find that seems to do statistics rigorously is this book "Theory of statistics" by Schervish (which seems advanced):

http://www.amazon.com/Theory-Statistics-Springer-Series/dp/0387945466

Question 1: Are there other books that do statistics rigorously (and theoretically do not assume prior knowledge of statistics) ?

I took only an introductory non-rigorous course called "Probability and Statistics" that is taught for engineers at my university. I know analysis. I know some measure theory. I plan to finish the book measure theory by Halmos which has a chapter on probability theory (I'm currently self-studying it).

Question 2: If I finish the book measure theory by Halmos, will my background in probability theory be sufficient to learn the book "Theory of Statistics" by Schervish ?

Thank you a lot.
