Editorial Reviews

Review

"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."  Reviewed by: Julia Smedley, Occupational Medicine   Date: July 2015

To claim to love a textbook would be crazy in some way, but this textbook breaks the subject matter down in an understandable way and has done much to help me understand what my instructors are hoping for me to learn. Is there really much more that one can ask for in a textbook?

This is a really great textbook. This is a subject that could easily be very dry, but the author writes in a clear, engaging, non-patronizing manner that made it actually pleasurable to read. The author included humor and a great multitude of real-life examples to bring home the point- to help you, a non-epidemiologist, understand well. I'm a graduate nursing student with undergraduate degrees in both biology and nursing, and never felt the need to write a textbook review before. Teachers and professors, please consider this textbook for your classes!

I used this textbook for an undergraduate epidemiology course. Even though the instructor didn't require us to frequently read this text I chose to do so to be better grounded in the concepts, ideas, and methods required in epidemiology. The instructor was not the best, and used images in his slides from this text, however I thought it best to read it on my own to help clarify his teachings. Sometimes the descriptions of the different concepts, theories, ideas and examples were dense and complex requiring constant re readings. The book describes the major study designs used in public health which include: clinical random trial, cohort, cross-sectional, and case control. I appreciate that book had examples of the topics currently discussed, however I felt that this book would have been stronger if there had been practice questions after the conclusion of each trial. I think that this would have been especially important for getting the hang of the two by two table; which I did, but as a result of practicing such questions during class and related to class lectures. This book is beneficial in providing the background information for certain topic in public health, however sometimes I believe that once certain topics are explored further the writing detracts from the clarification of each topic. Anyways I guess this textbook would be good for any undergraduate or graduate epidemiology course. I gave this textbook three stars because of the writing which at times makes simple concepts, ideas, and theories harder to grasp. I also felt that there should have been review questions regarding the topics described in the previous chapter, similarly, there should be a final review for all the topics in the book.Read more ›

I am currently reading the book for an epi grad class. It has MANY examples that help illustrate points, which I need. Also, the questions at the end of the text help solidify the points, which I also need. What's disappointing is that I bought the e-book version and the tables and charts are often too small (font and all) for me to read. If this had been an actual book, I am sure it would have been printed in a reading-sized font. The one via Kindle is toooooo small and, thus, I miss much needed insight since lots of questions and examples refer to these tables and figures :(

Kindle needs to review it's e-printing of this text, including offer ways of enlarging it. (I cannot enlarge it even via my computer's functions).

This is the best book in epidemiology for beginners and whose concentration is not epidemiology and need to know about epidemiology. It makes it so simple to learn by yourself .

If you are a public health or epidemiology student you should own this book. What sets it apart from similar textbooks is that it very thoroughly and clearly explain important concepts; nothing is just glossed over as in other textbooks. It does not go in to great depth some methods/tools used in clinical epidemiology such as inter-rater agreement, statistical models and other statistical methods etc., but I don't think it was part of the scope of the book. A truly excellent book you should buy.

This is a detailed book of Epi methods and theories for people who are interested in the subject. It certainly helped me out. I especially found the practice problems at the end of each chapter super helpful.
