Description: This textbook is written by two professors after their many years of teaching introductory biostatistics. Their goal is to create a "fairly thin book which emphasizes a few basic principles rather than a jumble of facts."
Purpose: The purpose is to present introductory biostatistics topics.
Audience: The book is targeted at students in health-related disciplines who are required to take an introductory course in biostatistics.
Features: Some of the real-life examples presented in the book are very useful for interpreting results of statistical analyses.
Assessment: The book would require the instructor to clarify some unexplained facts and concepts. It may become more useful only after being tested in the classroom settings, revised, and cleared from typographical errors.
