Editorial Reviews

Review

… an informative and readable text on the design, conduct, and analysis of cluster randomized trials (cRCTs). …the book is rich with examples providing practical illustrations of concepts … This book by Hayes and Moulton adds new insights into the field … I would recommend this book highly … This book would also provide an excellent resource for those who deliver courses on clinical trials and would be an excellent addition to the reference library of any trials unit.
—Marion K. Campbell, Clinical Trials, 2011

This comprehensive book covers all the main topics associated with design, conduct, and analysis of cluster randomised trials (CRTs). It follows a logical structure, which is easy to read and avoids excessive mathematical detail, making the book more accessible to wider readership. … One of the great advantages of this useful handy book is that it does not just follow the theory; research-based examples aid understanding and bridge theory with practical applications. …In summary, this book is an excellent introduction to the field of CRTs. It explains the methodology and conduct of CRTs in an accessible way. In addition, theory is complemented by practical examples. On this basis, I would highly recommend the book to all interested parties. If the aim of this book is to help readers to understand and apply a range of methods for the design and analysis of CRTs, then it is successful and accomplishes it well.
Pharmaceutical Statistics, 2011

… the authors have achieved their aim in providing a suitable introduction to even the more advanced issues for everyone involved in the planning, conduct and analysis of these studies.
ISCB News #49, June 2010

…This is a well-written book which I definitely recommend, especially as a textbook for graduate or postgraduate level studies, or as a reference book for researchers working on the design or analysis of CRTs. …
Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Series A, Volume 173, Issue 1, January 2010

… highly recommend this book for its unique and very important strengths. In particular, Hayes and Moulton should be congratulated for their focus on infectious diseases, a research topic which has received limited attention from statisticians interested in randomized trials. The broader discussion of direct and indirect effects of intervention is also very valuable.
—Neil Klar, Journal of Biopharmaceutical Statistics, 2010, Issue 1

…The authors point out that the CRT is relatively new and that, although the topic is covered here pretty comprehensively, it is still an active research area. It’s difficult to think of any important issue or aspect that is not discussed here, and at length and in depth. … There is no heavy mathematics so the material is accessible to a wide range of readers. …

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By David Robbins Tien on January 23, 2009
Format: Hardcover
This is a "must have" book for any busy clinician participating in clinical trials. The authors have done an admirable job of keeping the math to a minimum while still including enough to provide statistical heft.

With large clinical trials becoming ubiquitous in modern evidence-based medicine, understanding the information generated by statistical analysis of the data generated by these studies will be essential for the practitioner as well as the hardened researcher.
