Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is an excellent text for teaching an introductory course in biostatistics and for those interested in self-study." (The American Statistician, November 2008)

“This book seems to me to be a very useful course text for an audience of students in the health sciences.” (Biometrics, December 2008)

"This is an excellent text for teaching an introductory course in biostatistics and for those interested in self-study." (The American Statistician, November 2008)

"…this reviewer recommends without any reservation this book for an introductory course in medical statistics." (MAA Reviews, December 28, 2007)

From the Back Cover

Now in its fourth edition, this book is an updated and expanded version of a best seller in medical statistics. It is a concise, clearly written introduction to statistical terms and methods used in medicine.

Many medical and health science students will have some knowledge of statistics when they take up their courses. However this knowledge is often general in nature and not relevant to a medical environment.  Medical Statistics: A Textbook for the Health Sciences , Fourth Edition provides students and practitioners with a clear, readable introduction to the statistics they will come across in their regular reading of clinical papers. References to real examples and published papers are used throughout as part of the teaching element of the book

Review of the Third Edition

"a simple, interesting and insightful introduction to medical statistics...highly recommended." Statistical Methods in Medical Research

 

  • comprehensive coverage of the essential statistical methods.
  • worked examples and exercises on the interpretation of the statistics in papers published in medical journals.
  • written by three experts with wide teaching and consulting experience.
  • excellent layout of information, learning objectives, test questions and answers all serving to promote the book’s proven effectiveness as a learning tool

Very concise and well organized.
Susan A. Ott
I figured I could just ignore these, but then I ran across this on page 18: "...is 20/100,000 = 0.00002".

Like the poster above mentioned, the mathematical error on page 18 is a huge turn-off.

Format: Paperback
It's a good book for beginner of medical statistics. It can be viewed as a simplified version of "Practical Statistics for Medical Research " by Douglas G. Altman. The principles of a specific statistical test with its assumption were well listed. It can be viewed as a quick reference guide in using a particular statistical test.

For those who wants some mathematical derivatives, they include a small paragraph of calculation about it

Format: Paperback
This book is required reading for an introductory, graduate level statistics class. The material itself is ok. Like the poster above mentioned, the mathematical error on page 18 is a huge turn-off. It is simple math, the simplest this book shows! There are also countless grammatical errors that sometimes make it hard to understand basic sentences and concepts. I am a very literal reader and multiple times have had to go back and edit pages myself before I could read them and disregard completely unnecessary commas or periods to make the writing understandable. This book is going out to beginners and people who don't have much background in statistics. At the very least it could be understandable and well edited. I'm on chapter 7 of 15 and don't expect it to get any better.

Format: Paperback
I've taught out of this book three time (graduate students, fellows). It's an outstanding text for folks in a medical school environment who haven't had a basic statistics course or had one a long time ago. The progression of material is excellent, the examples are clear, and the material is pitched at exactly the right level. My copy (4th edition) does not appear to have the typos mentioned by others here.
