The second edition of this concise book clearly sets out and explains the analytical methods employed in the study of the incidence of infectious diseases. The well illustrated text uses practical examples throughout and has been thoroughly updated in line with changing health concerns, including a new chapter on outbreak investigations. Now in a more user-friendly larger format the book has been redesigned to make text, illustrations, examples and equations more accessible.

Johan Giesecke is at Karolinska Institute.Review:
It is very readable and clearly and genially takes the reader through the basics of infectious diseases and epidemiology before bringing the two themes together. I have learned a lot from reading this clear exposition. This book was a delight to review. It is clearly written and has a very logical way of explaining the subject.

This book is undoubtedly authoritative and detailed, and as such seems appropriate for those with an academic interest in communicable disease epidemiology, or a need to understand this field in great depth
Journal of Public Health Medicine
Giesecke has to a great degree brought successfully together the basic tools of statistics and methodology and their application in understanding the epidemiology of infectious disease
There is a clarity and brevity when discussing necessary mathematical concepts so that a quick clear grasp of the issues can be gained. This is a lucid, thoroughly readable book which may be read from cover to cover of dipped into and referred to again.
Journal of Epidemiology
A very readable book that leaves you inspired and confident to tackle some of those gnawing questions without feeling the need to call up 'the epidemiologists'.By his enthusiasm, I believe Professor Giesecke enjoyed writing this book and he has done us a service in doing so.
This is the most authoratative and clearly written book on infectious disease epidemiology - the first edition was was outstanding - I am sure the second edition is even better. I strongly recommend it to my students and colleagues.
