Here is the judges’ summary of this book:
“This is a technical book on a technical subject but presented
in a delightful way. There are many books on statistics for doctors
but there are few that are excellent and this is certainly one of

providing a comprehensive coverage of advanced as well as basic
The second edition of Essential Medical Statistics has
been comprehensively revised and updated to include modern
statistical methods and modern approaches to statistical analysis,
while retaining the approachable and non-mathematical style of the
first edition. The book now includes full coverage of the most
commonly used regression models, multiple linear regression,
logistic regression, Poisson regression and Cox regression, as well
as a chapter on general issues in regression modelling. In
addition, new chapters introduce more advanced topics such as
meta-analysis, likelihood, bootstrapping and robust standard
errors, and analysis of clustered data.
Aimed at students of medical statistics, medical researchers,
public health practitioners and practising clinicians using
statistics in their daily work, the book is designed as both a
teaching and a reference text. The format of the book is clear with
highlighted formulae and worked examples, so that all concepts are
presented in a simple, practical and easy-to-understand way. The
second edition enhances the emphasis on choice of appropriate
methods with new chapters on strategies for analysis and measures
of association and impact.
