Reviews of the previous editions
"The more familiar I have become with this book, the more Iappreciate the clear presentation and unthreatening prose. It isnow a valuable companion to my formal statistics course."
International Journal of Epidemiology
"I heartily recommend it, especially to first years, but it′sequally appropriate for an intercalated BSc or Postgraduateresearch. If statistics give you headaches – buy it. Ifstatistics are all you think about – buy it."
"...I unreservedly recommend this book to all medical students,especially those that dislike reading reams of text. This is onebook that will not sit on your shelf collecting dust once you havegraduated and will also function as a reference book."
