Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“I would happily recommend this book to all medical libraries … Public libraries should try to counteract this, in the interests of public health and safety, and might find this book to be a useful back-up tool for the purpose, though it is really designed for a more specialised readership.”  (Reference Reviews Journal, 2011)

"About 400 entries, updated and revised for this edition, are provided, including 30 new ones, ranging from active control equivalence studies to multiple linear regression to z-score." (Booknews, 1 April 2011)
