Editorial Reviews

Journal of Family Practice
An important and welcome text that greatly helps to demystify the epistemology and praxis of biomedical research.
Doody's Journal
The author is highly readable...the book is very well written, organized thoughtfully, and contains many clincal examples.
William C. McGaghie
This is the third edition of a practical handbook explaining how to critically read and interpret the research literature in clinical medicine. The author is highly readable. The stated purpose of this text is to provide clinicians with an approach to reading and understanding research articles that appear in medical journals. The book is intended for several levels of clinical learners: medical students, residents, and practitioners. It is appropriate for learners in these groups who have little or no knowledge of clinical research methods. The book is very well written, organized thoughtfully, and contains many clinical examples. It has a detailed index and table of contents. The references cited are pertinent and appropriate. This is a very useful book for medical practitioners, regardless of specialty. It can be used as a primary text for formal instruction or continuing medical education. The book also has great value for self-instruction and as a reference book on the busy clinician's shelf.

Provides clinicians and medical students with an approach to reading and understanding research articles that appear in medical journals, focusing largely on epidemiology. The third edition substitutes more relevant examples, especially reflecting the importance of publications on HIV/AIDS; the dates of the first two editions are not noted. Annotation c.
