Review:

Review from previous edition: "The coverage may not be very different from that of other introductory texts, but in my view the style and content are, and they alone make this text one of the best of its kind. The approach is very data driven, and the use of real data makes this even more appealing...this is an excellent book -- in my view it should be the first choice for any student wanting a serious introduction to the practice of medical statistics." --The Statistician

"If you want to understand some of the statistical ideas important to medicine but fear being overwhelmed by mathematics you will welcome An Introduction to Medical Statistics." --British Medical Journal

"At last I have a book on medical statistics that I can safely recommend to my students!...One of the pleasures of the book is that it contains real data." --Journal of the Royal Statistical Society

"It is a book which I think anyone teaching an introductory course in medical statistics should seriously consider as the main text." --Statistics in Medicine
