From the book reviews:

“The authors present fundamental and basic ideas and methods of analysis of survival/event-history data from both applications and methodological points of view. … This book is clearly written and well structured for a graduate course as well as for practitioners and consulting statisticians. … There are many good examples in this edition, and more importantly, this new edition offers additional exercises, making it a good candidate for adoption as a textbook.” (Technometrics, August, 2012)

"This text is … an elementary introduction to survival analysis. It is primarily intended for self-study, but it has also proven useful as a basic text in a standard classroom course … . Each chapter starts with an Introduction, an Abbreviated outline, and Objectives, and ends with self tests, exercises and a detailed outline. Solutions to tests and exercises are also provided." (Göran Broström, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1093 (19), 2006)

"The most meaningful accolade that I can give to this text is that it admirably lives up to its title." Journal of the American Statistical Association, September 2006

"Imagine---a statistics textbook that actually explains things in English instead of explaining a topic by bombarding the reader with page-width equations requiring an advanced degree in Math just to read the book. If it weren't for this book, I would be really stuck." (David Britz)
