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)

Meet the Author

Brian S. Everitt - Professor Emeritus, King's College London. After 35 Years at the Institute of Psychiatry, University of London, Brian Everitt retired in May 2004. Author of approximately 100 journal articles and over 50 books on statistics, and also -co-editor of Statistical Methods in Medical Research. Writing continues apace in retirement but now punctuated by tennis, walks in the country, guitar playing and visits to the gym, rather than by committees, committees and more committees.

Christopher R. Palmer, founding Director of Cambridge University's Centre for Applied Medical Statistics, regularly teaches and collaborates with current and future doctors. His first degree was from Oxford, while graduate and post-doctoral studies were in the USA (at UNC-Chapel Hill and Harvard). He has shifted from mathematical towards applied statistics, with particular interest in the ethics of clinical trials and the use of flexible designs whenever appropriate. Fundamentally, he likes to promote sound statistical thinking in all areas of medical research and hopes this volume might help towards that end. Chris served as Deputy or Acting Editor of Statistics in Medicine, 1996-2000, and is a long-standing statistical reviewer for The Lancet. he and his wife have three children they consider to be more than Statistically significant.
