From the Publisher:

Provides busy medical students, nurses and doctors with a concise explanation of the underlying principles in medical statistics, yet keeps techniques in the background.

From the Back Cover:

'The book has several excellent features: it is written by statisticians, is ... well presented, is well referenced ... and it is short.' The Lancet

'Many statisticians are concerned at the generally poor standard of statistics in papers published in medical journals. Perhaps this could be remedied if more research workers would spare a few hour to read through Campbell and Machin's book.' British Medical Journal
