"… it offers unique perspectives and insights from three renowned experts in clinical trials who work at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and in the pharmaceutical industry. It is refreshing to see FDA and industry perspectives blended thoughtfully, as in this book. … Written clearly and concisely, the book is a pleasure to read. Although there are some technical discussions intended for statisticians, most of the book is readily accessible to medical researchers with little statistical training. We recommend the book to anyone interested in NI trials—statisticians and nonstatisticians alike."

"It is a pleasure to see a book completely devoted to the challenging arena of non-inferiority trials. … I am very impressed with its depth and breadth, and believe that it will be an important resource for anyone involved in designing non-inferiority trials. The authors weave in many examples, primarily in oncology, as well as a large set of references from the now substantial statistical literature on non-inferiority designs. … This book is a must-have resource for those involved in non-inferiority trials for the pharmaceutical industry, and a must-read for those new to non-inferiority trials. A portion of a special topics course in a biostatistics department could be built around this book, and this exposure would be especially valuable for students considering a career in or around the pharmaceutical industry."
—Erica Brittain, Australian & New Zealand Journal of Statistics, May 2012
"This is the first book which is devoted solely to non-inferiority studies. All three authors have published several papers on that topic over the last years. This comprehensive book covers in more than 400 pages nearly all aspects about non-inferiority trials, and beyond. It is also an excellent source of references about non-inferiority studies. … recommended for anyone working with clinical trials and in particular for those working in late phase drug development. It is an excellent source of concepts and statistical methods relevant for biostatisticians, clinical epidemiologists and students. This book also is a good source for non-inferiority studies for scientists from the clinical field."
