This book is a wonderful book for those 2nd year Master's Epidemiology students who want a detailed but direct resource book for any and all ideas within graduate school. As the title entails, this is not an introductory book or for anyone who is new to the subject. I particularly love the chapter on confounding - it has helped me greatly with writing my thesis. The information is very deep at times, however, but is straight enough to be able to use as a quick resource for any forgotten first year ideas. I recommend this as a NECESSARY book for all graduate students and new professional epidemiologists. It's a timeless book that will more than pay for itself in its usefulness.

The first thing one notices is that the authors continuously cite Gordis as a reference; one might've just purchased Gordis instead of this book. From a reductionist point of view, everything contained in Szklo and Nieto is almost also the same as everything contained in Gordis, except for the illustrations (which are not that great in Gordis, either). However, one thing that is missing in Gordis, but present in this book, are the algebraic derivations of many measurement of association equations (i.e., relative risk, odds ratios, attributable risk, etc.). Szklo and Nieto also dedicate more time in describing various aspects of different epidemiological studies, such as in the selection of cases and controls, their related measurements of association, and relevant examples from the literature or current studies. In addition, the chapters are organized rather dryly, similar to a calculus text book (i.e, Chapter 4, Section 4.1, 4.1.1, 4.1.1.1, etc.), though that may just be the reason why this book is recommended for the more "serious" intermediate epidemiology student.

Format: Paperback
Agree with most of the other reviewers - this IS a very well written text and does a great job at explaining many complex concepts (I too had many lightbulbs go off when reading this text).

I think its strength is that it is written for a reasonably advanced level (i.e., this is NOT meant for intro epi students) and goes into more depth (and more up-to-date examples) than Kelsey, without being as undecipherable as Rothman. Lots of relevant examples that illustrate the concepts discussed in the text, and broken into logical sections. This is a text I will continue to use throughout my career.

Format: Paperback
This is a recommended reading for the advance training clinical research class. First time I read this book before the class - felt so confusing and could not finish the first chapter. However, after instruction class - I read it again and found it provide clear figures and examples to add on clear concepts in class lecture. The formal writting style may need high concentration in reading, meanwhile it give clear definition, good for using as reference. In conclusion, this book provide deep understanding for "beyond the basics epidemiology" student espacially accompany with course.

Updated: I learnt that there are some terminology that the reader need calibrate with current concept eg. "Nested case control", Definition of confounding.

Format: Paperback
I am astounded at the good reviews of this textbook. The authors jump from topic to topic in a non-systematic way. The writing is filled with overlong sentences, semicolons, and dependent clauses, all of which tend to confuse rather than clarify. I am an MD and am studying in an MPH progam in a second semester advanced epidemiology course with this book as a required text. It is possible to get through this book with substantial effort. The authors could stand to take a course themselves in academic writing.

Format: Paperback
This book is completly readable and very clear. It is challenging in that the authors do not gloss over concepts - so not for those who only want a superficial understanding of the topics. If you are mourning the change in reader-friendly first edition of Modern Epidemiology (Rothman et al.) to the dense and unreadable tome it has become, you will find this a welcome alternative.

This is an awesome book. It covers a few topics of epidemiology but does them in an awesome way..
I feel the only drawback is that it does not cover an exhaustive list of topics. Hence, if you are looking for something specific, you might want to first look at the book at a local library and see if it features the topic of interest..
Good book for the price..

A must for any graduate epidemiology student. Szklo and Nieto's writing can get a tad dry at times, but it really does seem to be the mostly highly-regarded text in the field. In my opinion, it is much more cogently and clearly written than Rothman's Modern Epidemiology. This is overall an awesome introduction to epidemiology, and a superb reference once you move on to more advanced/specialized courses.
