"This is best introductory textbook of epidemiology that I have encountered. It is also ranked the highest by my students. The major change from the fourth to fifth edition is the addition of more color to the tables and figures. The overall content has not changed much. Thus, for students who prefer a more colorful presentation, this edition is a worthwhile investment. If this is not the case and students have the previous edition, they can still learn the principles and methods of epidemiology from the prior edition."-Charles Lynch, MD,PhD, MS(University of Iowa College of Public Health) Doody Review: 4 stars
"The book is extremely well organized with clear sections. It benefits from a high level of illustration, including a variety of pictures, diagrams and even cartoons, some of which are in colour―which are an appealing and welcome break from the textual presentation of epidemiological theory. Overall, I think it is an excellent book for medical students and occupational medicine trainees and a useful revision and reference text for consultant occupational physicians―one of the most clearly laid out and readable general epidemiology texts that I have ever seen."

1. More content should be added for sampling.
2. The questions at the end of each chapter were occasionally worded in a very vague manner. For example, Page 114 Question 4 used the term "similar population", which is very ambiguous. Similar in baseline characteristics (sex, gender, race) or disease prevalence or both? That ambiguity affects the results of the question. There are more examples in the exercise questions that share the problem of wording.
