D. Crawford, Epidemiology and Infection
'This volume is very clearly written and has a well laid-out structure making it easy for the reader to dip in and dip out or to take long swims without getting tired. It has plenty of practical advice for the novice and for the experienced researcher. Well produced, this book deserves to be widely read - by clinicians, researchers, and managers.'
