PDQ Epidemiology is an exceptionally clear and highly irreverent review of the important concepts of medical statistics and their impact on public health policy.
By translating the terminology of epidemiology into easy to understand language, the common sense of the methods emerges and makes sense to students. Featuring unique examples, titled Convoluted Reasoning or Anti-intellectual Pomposity Detectors the text helps the reader identify studies with basic flaws in design or research.
