Editorial Reviews


From the reviews:

"In this introductory textbook, examples are carefully chosen to help readers understand important concepts in epidemiology and biostatistics, as well as their application to the field of clinical research. … the book will be useful to any healthcare practitioner interested in having a better understanding of clinical research. … This book has the important quality of providing students with an introductory overview that not only helps them understand the methods, but also guides those interested in learning more in the right direction." (Daniela Claudia Moga, Doody’s Review Service, November, 2009)

“This concise introductory textbook was ‘born from a disparate collection of written materials that were created to teach epidemiology and biostatistics to second-year medical students.’ … to provide medical students with a basic instruction to clinical epidemiology and biostatistics … . suitable for … students with no previous background in clinical epidemiology or biostatistics and for practitioners who want concise introduction to facilitate interpretation of the medical literature. … serve as the course text for a medical student introduction to clinical research methods.” (Douglas J. Lanska, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 303 (18), 2010)

From the Back Cover

This text provides students and other health professionals with the knowledge necessary to interpret clinical research articles, design clinical studies, and learn essential epidemiological concepts in an expedient and concise manner. Fundamental concepts are presented in a highly succinct format suitable for students with no previous background in epidemiology or statistics.

Drawing on teaching experience and student feedback, the author has created a text that attempts to recreate the perspective of learning epidemiology and biostatistics for the first time. The text serves as a rapid, intensive course in clinical research methods that can be used by students taking the required epidemiology course, residency and fellowship programs for physicians entering the clinical research portion of their training, and clinical research programs in fields such as nursing and nutrition that need an intensive course in clinical research design.

Having fumbled through numerous textbooks on epidemiology, this one is a stunner. The examples are superb and nicely illustrate the principles it tries to explain. Reading it is fun, and one can expect to finish it within a day or two. If you're a busy med student looking for a nice resource for epidemiology/biostat, look no further and this is it.

I found Kestenbaum's Epidemiology and Biostatistics book a practical text, well written with good examples, practice problems and illustrations covering the mayor topics of Epidemiology and Biostatistics needed to apply in clinical research.
