"A highly readable and practical guide, with numerous examples and exercises."--Robert E. McKeown in Epidemiology Monitor
From reviews of the first edition:
"A much-needed, descriptive, informative, comprehensive, and up-to-date guide to the many theoretical facts as well as the important practical applications of observational epidemiology. [The authors] expand on many concepts their colleagues merely label and focus these topics as the essence of epidemiological issues....The book is excellently illustrated with appropriate tables and figures that aid in the lucid presentation and clarification of the concepts and examples covered....Should serve as an excellent text for students learning methodology in epidemiology and as a handy and reliable reference source for scientists and researchers actively involved in non-experimental epidemiologic investigations."--Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine
"The most impressive feature...is its clarity....Throughout the book principles are illustrated by well-chosen examples from studies on a wide diversity of diseases."--The Lancet
"A comprehensive methods book covering a broad range of topics....Important and complicated concepts are communicated in a readable format with a minimum of symbols and equations, making this text appropriate to a wide audience within the field of public health....Well written...I highly recommend this book both as a graduate level text, and as a basic reference for practicing professionals."--Epidemiology Monitor
"This second edition has a number of features that clearly distinguish it from other books covering epidemiologic research methods...The book appears...useful as either a course textbook or for use in self-study....The pervasive reference to sources for more in-depth coverage of specific points is a strength often missing from texts attempting to cover a discipline broadly."--American Journal of Preventive Medicine
"This book received positive reviews at the time of the first edition and it offers the same good overview in the second edition of the topics confronted by epidemiologists ....Among the growing number of textbooks in epidemiology, this one should find a niche among the working epidemiologist."--Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal
"The second edition is a solid contribution to the field of epidemiology."--Chronic Diseases in Canada
