About the Author:

The combined biography of Drs Jadad and Enkin:
There is a 40-year difference in age between us and we comefrom vastly different backgrounds. Nevertheless, during more than adecade we have recognized the extent to which our paths andthinking have converged. We first noticed this in Oxford with ourmutual interest in systematic reviews and confirmed it at McMasterUniversity as we became painfully aware of the pitfalls of overreliance on quantitative evidence and its limited influence onhealth care. During the past 5 years, our focus has been more onthe value of rhetoric, information and communication technologies,complex systems and the importance of effective communication inthe health system.
Over the years, we have grown together in our understanding, haveworked together on a variety of projects, and mutually reinforcedour views on clinical evidence. We are happy to share our expandingvision of randomized trials in this new edition of the book.
