Epidemiologic speculations and research findings increasingly blaze across media headlines and heighten anxiety among the public. Understanding the foundations of such news can be daunting. Now in its third edition, Epidemiology for Public Health Practice has become a favorite textbook for undergraduate and graduate students new to epidemiology by providing a comprehensive look at all major topics, from study designs and descriptive epidemiology, to quantitative measures and terminology. Distinguishing itself from other texts with its accessible writing style and immediacy of information presented, the Third Edition has been extensively revised, with updated data and statistics essential to understanding the importance of epidemiology to public health.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good basic reference for Epidemiology February 5, 2009
Format:Paperback
This was a purchase that I made in order to participate in a master's level epidemiology course. It was perfectly complex for those interested in, but not yet involved in the health fields. Not too complicated and jargon filled, not too simplified. It provided a well rounded background for the subject matter with many background/historical reports for further elucidation of this field. It also included a wide variety of graphs, lists, information sources, etc. that are of use to those in the public heath field.

4.0 out of 5 stars Epidemiology Foundation October 14, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The text contains a very hearty background of epidemiology and the purpose of utilizing the subject in the real world. It provides plenty of actual examples of happenings and how epidemiologists were able to apply the concepts and perform duties in dire circumstances. The text is easy to follow and keeps the reader engaged. This should be recommended to any person who desires not just the basic foundation of epidemiology, but also a refresher course in knowledge of what epidemiologists do on a day-to-day basis. Great read!
