Review:


"The main intention of this book is to explain to a wide audience key concepts in environmental health, particularly environmental epidemiology, by using several high-profile issues as illustrations....These chapters were developed logically, with progressive construction of a framework of basic epidemiologic concepts, such as confounding, selection bias, statistical significance and power, confidence intervals, multiple comparisons, and casual inference criteria."--American Journal of Epidemiology
