Reviews of the First Edition
“…a resource beyond compare...the author index reads
like a contemporary Who's Who...nothing in biostatistics is left
uncovered...unsurpassed in quality and quantity"
—British Medical Journal
"An unsurpassed addition to the statistical literature
…The present scope of statistics in medical research is
nowhere more manifest …the coverage is breathtaking"
