It gives confidence to the reader in taking up the challenge of understanding statistics and [being] able to apply knowledge in analysing medical literature.” Stefanie Zhao Lin Lip & Louise Murchison, Scottish Medical Journal, June 2010 “If ever there was a book that completely lived up to its title, this is it… The whole way in which the authors have written this book is commendable; the chapters are succinct, easy to follow and a pleasure to read…Is it value for money? ? a definite yes even at twice the price. Of course I never exaggerate but if you breathe, you should own this book!” Ian Pearce, Urology News, June 2010
