"In summary, this book is very well written. Its first three parts and the final part will be invaluable to dentists who are embarking on a clinical research project for the first time. In the reviewer's opinion, Part IV is more suitable for those undertaking doctoral studies or who have significant previous research experience." (Primary Dental Care, July 2010)
