Published Reviews of the 2th Edition
"One word which definitely describes this book is "comprehensive". Anything you ever wanted to know about medical statistics is covered in immense detail."

"This is a comprehensive book that includes an impressive range of topics often omitted from books aimed at non-statisticians.
...a resource that makes it easy for a beginner to comprehend a wide range of statistical concepts and tools. Essential Medical Statistics fills an important niche by providing practical information on a comprehensive scope of modern statistical methods and, at the same time, communicating on the same wavelengths as physicians and other nonstatisticians."
Teaching of Statistics in the Health Sciences, Section of the American Statistical Association, Spring 2004
"The book is laid out in a logical fashion and includes all of the tables you need to find p-values once you have performed a test. It covers simple statistical methods, such as how to calculate the mean and standard deviation, progressing to linear and multiple regression, Poisson regression and measures of impact and association.
...I would recommend using it to anyone who is still struggling with statistics."
North Wing, Sheffield Medics Magazine, Winter 2004
"The book is generally well laid out, the indexing is well structured and a comprehensive bibliography is provided. The topics are easy to locate and include practical examples. These attributes make it a useful text for both consulting and teaching purposes."
