Biostatistics Decoded is an excellent primer for clinical research professionals. It is a step above the basic level and far less technical than books intended for readers with statistical expertise. (Journal of Clinical Research Best Practices, 8 August 2014)
Study design and statistical methodology are two important concerns for the clinical researcher. This book sets out to address both issues in a clear and concise manner. The presentation of statistical theory starts from basic concepts, such as the properties of means and variances, the properties of the Normal distribution and the Central Limit Theorem and leads to more advanced topics such as maximum likelihood estimation, inverse variance and stepwise regression as well as, time–to–event, and event–count methods. Furthermore, this book explores sampling methods, study design and statistical methods and is organized according to the areas of application of each of the statistical methods and the corresponding study designs. Illustrations, working examples, computer simulations and geometrical approaches, rather than mathematical expressions and formulae, are used throughout the book to explain every statistical method.
Biostatisticians and researchers in the medical and pharmaceutical industry who need guidance on the design and analyis of medical research will find this book useful as well as graduate students of statistics and mathematics with an interest in biostatistics

I have read a few statistics books over the years, but reading Biostatistics Decoded gave me many "ah-ha, now I get it" moments. Read morePublished 20 months ago by antom
this is essential if you are a budding Einstein.
for everyone else it is not really that good to read in bed.
unless your biostats need decoding!
