Review:

"The updates in this edition retain the high standards set forth in the original book. This book is written at a level that is understandable to the relative novice in terms of QOL assessment and provides excellent examples, but also has details and formulas to satisfy methologically advanced researchers. This book is excellent reference for anyone needing a comprehensive but accessible text on QOL and PROs assessment." (Biometrics, September 2008)

"This book is exceptionally well written and nicely illustrated and has an excellent style, all of which make it a pleasure to read." (Journal of the American Statistical Association, September 2008)
