Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book follows the logical stages of a research project while introducing the major epidemiological concepts and practices. … For students and practitioners such as field epidemiologists, this book is very important. … it is most appropriate for epidemiology students working on their dissertations or researchers (MD, resident) who want to start a research project. … This is a very interesting book because of its practical nature and thoroughness for field epidemiologists. It is an excellent addition to epidemiology advanced courses … for PhD students.” (Ousmane Diallo, Doody’s Book Reviews, July, 2013)
