8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Franz Wiesbauer on August 29, 2005
Format: Paperback
This is the best epi book for beginners that I have come across. It is written by one of the greatest epi-teachers. Leon Gordis has a great teaching style. The book essentially covers the topics we covered in class. I enjoyed reading this book when I was a student and now that I have students myself I recommend this text to them...they all love it. Worth the money.

Format: Paperback
This textbook is an outstanding textbook for either the graduate student in public health or a medical student.

Dr. Leon Gordis brings clarity to a subject which challenges many students. Particularly, his use of terminology unique to the field of epidemiology is well done. He does not assume the student is born understanding terminology that has varied meanings in different specialties by using the terms with their definition in full sentences. He appears to anticipate the typical student's questions and answers them without appearing to talk down to the reader. Well done!

I would recommend this textbook without any reservations.

Format: Paperback
I have never thought that epidemiology could be this interesting to learn. Many other books are dull to read comparatively, even though these other books may have more material to sell. This book by Dr Gordis stands out to be a great starter book for all.

Format: Paperback
This book explains everything very clearly. It has good concrete real examples of diff studies and the things that are wrong with them. There are very few review questions, however, and sometimes the book rambles on and gets repetitive.

Format: Paperback
this book is required for our class. However, it is such a well-written book, that anyone interested in the basics of epidemiology would be able to understand the concepts and gain a deeper understanding of public health.

By Shaun Cole on January 10, 2008
Format: Paperback
This was a required text for my introductory epidemiology course. I have had an interest in epi for a number of years and approached the book with a fair amount of skepticism, especially given its relatively small size. After reading the first few chapters I found Gordis's writing style to be dry and too convoluted for otherwise simple topics. Saying this, halfway through the semester I really warmed up to the book and the author's subtle humor. The sections on odds ratios and matched/unmatched case-control studies were explained so well that I had a eureka moment that I had hoped for prior to taking my first USMLE step. For an introductory book, it covers with perfect detail the basic methods and principles of epidemiology and provides elegant descriptions of the applications to both clinical medicine and public health. The illustrations offer great clarity to the theory and I have already referenced them on many occasions during other courses and while reading journal articles. It will remain on my shelf until the next edition is released.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Not often do I take the time to write a review for a book, especially a text book. However, I have to say that this book was worth the purchase. I am a public health graduate student and epi is a core course for the degree program. It's been almost three years since I took my intro epi course and I have not used some of the epi terminology in a while (don't use it, you lose it.) I am now studying for my comprehensive exam and I find that this book is a lot more reader friendly than the book I had to use for my actual course. The explanations within the book are helpful and the diagrams help reinforce the material. It makes me wonder if there is a biostats book written like this one..? Anyway, great book, I would recommend it.
