Format: Paperback
This book is awesome, I bought it as I fall in love with it because it was one of my courses books ... the new approach to medical literature is genius ... the book covers many aspects including diagnostics and others ... above all it amusing too, the surprising results of clinical trials part is great.

This guide should be required reading for all people who work in the health field. Journalists who write/speak about health related topics would benefit as well. Highly recommend.

Great reference May 23 2010
By Janice G. Stevens - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This should be a required text for everyone in medicine as well as for anyone who reviews medical articles. As a scientist, I am often dismayed at the poor quality of many of the studies conducted and even more dismayed when a study of poor quality is picked up by the popular press and reported as gospel. Equally disconcerting is when the results of a study are misinterpreted or mis-reported in reviews. I would highly recommend this reference to anyone who regularly reads anything in the medical literature.

This is a very useful book, not only for medical students but also for librarians who are interested in teaching EBM.
Great read!!! May 9 2013

I really love the format of this textbook. It's designed to help any major understand the research and statistical application of healthcare. Also great for reference material.
Dense March 18 2013

Full of information, but not particularly digestible. Definitely best as a reference, not ideal as a textbook (which is what I'm using it for)

This is the all-purpose guide to evaluating medical literature Sept. 15 2013
By John Owen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The content is a bit uneven, though overall is of very high quality. I just finished re-reading it on my Kindle. For those of you interested in the Kindle version be aware that much of the "boxed" content does not flow i.e. the pagination is poor. I blame the editors for this porr transcription from print to Kindle.
