"[An] excellent guide...The book is an excellent reference for doctors and students working in different areas, such as the pharmaceutical industry, epidemiology, psychology or genetics. Readers with a stronger background in applied statistics can get an excellent overview of statistical terms in areas with which they may be unfamiliar. This book is definitely worth including in a pharmaceutical library."
Lada Mitchell, Pharmaceutical Statistics
"I recommend 'Medical Statistics from A to Z: A Guide for Clinicians and Medical Students'. I believe that it will be useful for the target audience (clinicians, medical students, and research workers in the health sciences)...also of interest to TSHS members who consult with clinicians and investigators in the health sciences, and who teach medical students and health science students."
Robert A. Oster for Teaching of Statistics in the Health Sciences
"This book will be a valuable resource for public health practitioners, medics and non-medics alike, individually or as part of a unit's library."
