This is an important contribution to the field of evidence-based medicine. It is a well written, easy to understand, follow, and use, small handbook that I plan to keep in my pocket whenever reading medical literature from now on. It is specifically designed to assist non-statistician readers work through the maze of analysis reported in clinical medicine. It is well organised and flows from basic concepts to specific areas.
