From reviews of the previous edition:
`The book has some important characteristics that differentiate it from others in the field. Another unique feature is the presentation of tutorials that are highlighted in boxes.' Journal of Mental Health Policy and Economics
`This book is a new second edition of what became the standard text for Health Economists and can be heartily recommended to anyone who is interested in this vitally important area of research.' Amazon.com
`An important contribution to studies on the economic evaluation of medical care.' British Medical Journal
`This is essential reading. Only if all managers are aware of the powers of economic techniques will they be used sensibly.' Health Service Journal
`This book suited my needs to perfection and is an ideal accompaniment to a course that combines methodology with critical appraisal and hands-on practical training in using these techniques. The methodological chapters on cost analysis and cost utility are gems... should become the standard text on the subject at the intermediate level at which it is aimed.' Medical Decision Making
`This book is a must for every student in health services sciences.' Acta Hospitalia
`The book is well designed and clearly written.' Canadian Public Policy
`It leaves nothing important in economic evaluation analysis untouched.' Health Policy and Planning
