5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive reference-- a must for any public health/medical students!
Epidemiology of Chronic Disease serves as a great introduction to the epidemiology as well as the clinical/pathologic considerations for many of the major chronic diseases encountered today. The text is a solid point of reference for any individual interested in a clinical and public health understanding of chronic disease from cancer to stroke to AIDS, to name a...

2.0 out of 5 stars For Physicians and Medical Students Only
I agree with the previous reviewer that "every medical student should own" this book. However, individuals without a great deal of training in medicine or physiology will have a hard time following Harris's explanations. He goes into great detail on the physiological mechanisms underlying epidemiological results and seldom explains the many technical terms he...

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive reference-- a must for any public health/medical students!, November 15, 2012
This review is from: Epidemiology Of Chronic Disease: Global Perspectives (Paperback)
Epidemiology of Chronic Disease serves as a great introduction to the epidemiology as well as the clinical/pathologic considerations for many of the major chronic diseases encountered today. The text is a solid point of reference for any individual interested in a clinical and public health understanding of chronic disease from cancer to stroke to AIDS, to name a few.

As a medical student with minimal public health background, I find this book to be invaluable in helping to further build my clinical picture of commonly encountered diseases. Each chapter provides a relevant and succinct review of the pathology of the disease process; the chapter then proceeds to the epidemiological of the disease globally. The book is remarkably well-written, reading easily despite the dense nature of the material. I imagine that the book would be a solid reference point for students of public health, as I have yet to find another book that rivals the comprehensive nature of Dr. Harris's text.

I believe every medical student should own this book!

This review is from: Epidemiology Of Chronic Disease: Global Perspectives (Paperback)
I agree with the previous reviewer that "every medical student should own" this book. However, individuals without a great deal of training in medicine or physiology will have a hard time following Harris's explanations. He goes into great detail on the physiological mechanisms underlying epidemiological results and seldom explains the many technical terms he uses. The book would also benefit from a chapter that reviews basic statistical methods and epidemiological models.
