Description: This is the standard introductory textbook in epidemiology that is used by most schools of public health.
Purpose: This is a basic introduction to epidemiology and the epidemiologic approach to problems of health and disease. It covers the basic principles and methods of epidemiology and it provides many examples of the applications of epidemiology to public health and clinical medicine.
Audience: The audience for this book includes graduate students in public health, nursing, medicine, and veterinary medicine. Dr. Leon Gordis is a world-renowned epidemiologist from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
Features: This book consists of 20 chapters divided into three sections covering the epidemiologic approach to disease and intervention, using epidemiology to identify the cause of disease, and applying epidemiology to evaluation and policy.
Assessment: This is arguably the best introductory textbook in epidemiology. It is well written, well illustrated, and an enjoyable book to read.
