Reviews


"The book is unusual in having less ambitious goals than the average statistics textbook. The focus is not to teach applications but, as the preface maintains, simply to enable readers to knowledgeably read the new literature, to understand the statistical methods used, and thereby to better keep abreast of new findings in epidemiology and genetics." (JAMA, September 13, 2010)

"This is a well-written and comprehensive review of the basic (and not-so-basic) concepts and techniques in biostatistics. It is understandable to biologists and clinicians, while still providing useful pointers and reminders to statisticians. It is worth a place on the bookshelves of all researchers in genetics, regardless of their statistical expertise." (Human Genetics, February 2010)

"Anyone who wishes to critically read biomedical literature will find the knowledge gained from reading [the text] of great value." (American Journal of Epidemiology, 2009)
