Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The authors have taken a wealth of information and condensed it into an easy-to-read book. This rapidly changing field necessitates periodic updated editions to remain current."- Mindi TenNapel, MBA MS(University of Iowa College of Public Health) Doody Review: 5 stars
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mindi J TenNapel, MBA MS(University of Iowa College of Public Health)
Description: This fourth edition of a basic book on epidemiology, biostatistics, preventive medicine, and public health incorporates needed updates from the 2007 edition.
Purpose: The authors' goal to provide an update every five years strikes the proper balance between incorporating the changes in a rapidly evolving field and the time needed to update a book. This edition provides separate sections on public health and preventive medicine, which enables the authors to highlight a public health focus on populations and a preventive medicine focus on the individual, with a shared goal of achieving optimum health.
Audience: Designed for courses and preventive medicine board review, the book covers basic and important topics in epidemiology, statistics, preventive medicine, and public health, providing a breadth of information in a concise and intelligible manner. The authors are authorities in their field and they have gathered experts as contributors.
Features: Each of the four sections is further parsed with clear subsections of concise, manageable definitions and examples. Easy to read figures and tables are visually pleasing and help to emphasize key points. Biostatistics can be a daunting subject, and the authors do an excellent job of presenting this information in an understandable way.
Assessment: The authors have taken a wealth of information and condensed it into an easy-to-read book. This rapidly changing field necessitates periodic updated editions to remain current.
