I am a declared fan of this book. I teach on how to do research to med students and this book is very straight forward and practical.
I believe that this book is a must for physicians that want to do research and have no time to learn everything. It is designed for everyone to pose their research question, select the design (which I believe is the right way to do research)(first 6 chapters) and then read the chapters about the selected design. It has additional chapters about searching funds(seldom included in research books) and ethical issues. My favorite chapters are the first two for beginners with no research experience (research question), the fifth (hypothesis) and the sixth (sample size), and the questionnaire chapter. The questionnaire chapter is a masterpiece, it teaches about difficult subjects in a practical and very easy way for physicians to understand. I have let away most of my books about questionnaires aside with this chapter (for physicians, for research specialties you might go to other books). And in this new edition the data management chapter has included the use of software for data analysis.
I hope the Spanish version of this 3rd edition will be available soon.

The book is well-written and very easy to follow along. However, it is far too simple and does not provide detailed enough descriptions of clinical study designs. Not worth the money. Check if your library has an online copy.

Purchased this book for a course. It is quite useful, particularly for those like me who do not know much about how to do clinical research but need to learn. Wish that it had a little more explanation of the statistics, though. Otherwise, very helpful book.

Probably one of the most complete works on research fundamentals, biostats, and design strategy. A must for all grad students in any of the biomedical fields, even clinicians.

When I think of books about statistical analysis and clinical research, I'm not expecting a page turner, and while this book isn't taut with suspense or plot, it is remarkably readable and even has a sense of humor. In a clinical textbook, that's saying quite a bit. The writing is clear, the examples are understandable, and I find I am getting a good sense of the functions and applications of biostatistics with less angst than I would have thought possible. I highly recommend this book to anyone setting out to write a grant for the first time, or design graduate level research. Well written, relevant and pleasantly digestible.

I bought the previous edition and was so impressed with it that as soon as this edition came out, I bought it as well. I think that someone with no methodology training stands to benefit the most from reading this book. Having said that, I have a Master's in epidemiology and I will tell you, there is always something worthwhile to read in this book, whenever I come back to it.

If you are serious about clinical research, this is one book not to miss!!
