"While impossible to cover every aspect of statistical analysis in a single book, this book does a nice job of covering the most common methods, from simple to complex, with an emphasis on the common methods seen in the field of health research ... ideal to keep on hand as a reference manual."
-Melissa Plegue, University of Michigan in International Statistical Review
