Product Description

Review

"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

First Sentence
In addition to the issues of study design reviewed in Chapter 1, designing, conducting, and interpreting epidemiologic studies requires an understanding of the biologic processes involved in disease causation and of the statistical ways of measuring associations between risk factors and diseases. Read the first page

I think this book,Methods in Observational Epidemiology, might be very good reference to many scientists, especially biostatistist or epidemiologists.

Great Textbook April 10 2013

This was an recommended title for my class, and I am so glad I bought it. Love the way it is written. Great book to have for anyone interested or working in public health.
Provides The Information Feb. 8 2014
By Angela M Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
A lot of material and content - good overview of the methods. A little on the "academia" side of providing information. I can see why instructors use it as a textbook in an epidemiology course.
Too wordy Oct. 20 2013
By Lindsay Hong - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This book could be half as long. The book makes straight forward topics seem complicated with their unnecessarily long explanations. It is also incredibly redundant.

Boring as hell Dec 3 2004
By Frustrated post-doc - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I drudged my way through the early chapters of this book. Most all-star topics in epidemiology are reliably laid out there. Unfortunately, the book is boring as hell. The one time I tried to use one of examples given in the book to calculate something (power or sample size?) I got hopelessly lost - the layout does not allow formulas to stand out. I found class notes and handouts much more useful than this book.
