Editorial Reviews


"[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."
Journal of Public Health Medicine

Book Description

From 'Absolute risk' to 'Zero-sum game'--this accessible introduction to the terminology of medical statistics encompasses more than 1500 terms all clearly explained, illustrated and defined in non-technical language, and without any mathematical formulae! The definitions are supplemented with suggested further reading and references, and helpful tips and asides, all designed to make this an unintimidating guide to the bewildering world of medical statistics. This user-friendly approach will enable doctors and medical students to quickly grasp the meaning of any of the statistical terms they encounter when reading the medical literature.
