Review

"This is an excellent text for teaching an introductory course in biostatistics and for those interested in self–study." ( The American Statistician, November 2008)

“This book seems to me to be a very useful course text for an audience of students in the health sciences.” (Biometrics, December 2008)

"This is an excellent text for teaching an introductory course in biostatistics and for those interested in self–study." (The American Statistician, November 2008)

"…this reviewer recommends without any reservation this book for an introductory course in medical statistics." (MAA Reviews, December 28, 2007)

From the Back Cover

Now in its fourth edition, this book is an updated and expanded version of a best seller in medical statistics. It is a concise, clearly written introduction to statistical terms and methods used in medicine.

Many medical and health science students will have some knowledge of statistics when they take up their courses. However this knowledge is often general in nature and not relevant to a medical environment.  Medical Statistics: A Textbook for the Health Sciences , Fourth Edition provides students and practitioners with a clear, readable introduction to the statistics they will come across in their regular reading of clinical papers. References to real examples and published papers are used throughout as part of the teaching element of the book

Review of the Third Edition

"a simple, interesting and insightful introduction to medical statistics...highly recommended." Statistical Methods in Medical Research

 

  • comprehensive coverage of the essential statistical methods.
  • worked examples and exercises on the interpretation of the statistics in papers published in medical journals.
  • written by three experts with wide teaching and consulting experience.
  • excellent layout of information, learning objectives, test questions and answers all serving to promote the book’s proven effectiveness as a learning tool

Format: Paperback
This book is riddled with typos -- there are at least a dozen within the first 20 pages alone (e.g., p. 17: "If we anticipate that the treatment to reduce some bad outcomes (such as deaths) then it may be known as the absolute risk reduction"; p. 17, "Commonly, one may chose...."). I'm not finished with the book yet, but the extremely poor copy-editing job done on this volume doesn't make me feel very confident in the examples provided by the authors. Shame on the publisher for cutting corners like this!

There are mistakes that I can't believe! For example, p.237, Table 12.8, the pecentage dead for Insulin dependent should be 29%, not 60%! It really took me some time to figure out how the author came into such a conclusion, until I realized there is a mis-calculation!! Not sure whose fault it is?! Statisticians are supposed to be very sensative to figures? There are still many others. I don't want to finish this book but later it turned to be quite a fun reading such an unbelievably irresponsible book. How 4rd edition could be allowed to come out?

It is a nice book to improve the basic concepts of Statistics related with healthcare, but it just loses points because of printing mistakes.

I found this to be an utterly brilliant introduction to the once baffling world of medical statistics. Cleary written, easily understood with many good examples and explanations, with suitably in depth material. I was using this book for a Master's degree and can honestly say it has improved my critical analysis and understanding of the statistical methods used in medical papers such as systematic reviews and/or meta analysis publications.
