Review quote

The Dictionary can be of interest to a wide audience of people, scientists or not, who either just discovered or are familiar with epidemiology. This short and handy dictionary is definitely a creative knowledge object. Alfredo Morabia, Preventive Medicine This is an absolute mine of information. The reach of this book is enormous and I for one will always have it on the lowest of my book shelves within easy reach. This is an excellent way of refreshing, revising and reminding yourself when memory has faded a little. It is in short a 'must have' for any serious epidemiologist or student of epidemiology. Professor Ian Harvey, Public Health This dictionary is a crucial addition to any library or epidemiologist's bookshelf. Choice ...The Fifth Edition of A Dictionary of Epidemiology is an important and welcome source of authoritative information. It will undoubtedly be widely consulted by students, health practitioners and researchers in a multitude of social sciences and health-related disciplines in these fields. Abigail Fraser, Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy ...a good first reference to arbitrate discussions of definition. New students found defintions from the book to be approachable and quite clear. Students further along in their studies appreciated the straightforward definitions American Journal of Epidemiology Advance Access Like its prior editions, this is the gold standard for the filed and has the endorsement of the International Epidemiological Association...It is worth replacing the prior edition on the shelf with this one. James C Torner, Doody's Notes,show more
