Health and Numbers
Basic Biostatistical Methods
Chap T. Le and James R. Boen
Today, all professionals and students in medical and allied health fields need a working knowledge of the methods for statistical analysis. Unfortunately, the dry language and complex formulas of most statistics texts can be intimidating for those who are not mathematical specialists.

Health and Numbers: Basic Biostatistical Methods is an ideal introduction to this field for anyone involved in the medical support or allied health fields. Students in such areas as nursing, pharmacy, or public health education will find this book a most welcome alternative to oppressively complex, math-oriented texts.
