Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: James C. Torner, MS, PhD (University of Iowa College of Public Health)
Description: This is a basic introduction to epidemiology aimed at undergraduate students who want to understand epidemiologic concepts and applications.
Purpose: It provides a basic overview of epidemiology for the increasing number of undergraduate programs in public health. The book sets out the vocabulary and domains of epidemiology in a straightforward way with extensive examples.
Audience: Written for undergraduate students, the book would be appropriate for anyone who wants an introduction to epidemiology. Readers should appreciate the style of the book and progression of the topics. The author has outstanding experience which he shares in a descriptive and explanatory presentation.
Features: The book covers terminology, the history of epidemiologic concepts and events, the measures of epidemiology, aspects of descriptive and analytic epidemiology, and public health applications. The contemporary examples are the best aspect of the book and they should stimulate students to adapt the concepts and design to issues in public health. There are plenty of illustrations and graphs to demonstrate trends and comparisons. The predominance of one color in the graphs limits their ability to demonstrate the importance of the information.
Assessment: This introduction provides the basics, as well as an understanding and appreciation of epidemiology. The examples and applications can provide the impetus for students to learn more about public health. It will be interesting to see how this preparedness leads to the development of successive epidemiology books for undergraduates and the transition to graduate programs.
