5-0 out of 5 stars Clarity at last!
I'm ABD Economics and down to the dissertation.I have 10 titles on my shelf that deal directly with survival/event-history analysis.I've plowed though them all.Finally (!) I have one that is useful; and, this is the one.If you are not already familiar with this method and/or you are only going to get one book - this is the one to acquire.Far and away it beats everything else I've purchased. Don't be put off the by epidemiological examples - they're easy enough to read through.The authors' personal preference seems to be for STATA, but SAS and SPSS code are available in the appendix.

4-0 out of 5 stars useful book
this is a very useful book to introduce you to the concepts of survival analysis. It is better for those who already have basic knoweledge abour regression models but it can be used by beginners as well. Basic knowledge of statistics is strongly required.

5-0 out of 5 stars The only survival analysis book you'll ever need

5-0 out of 5 stars An outstanding introduction to epidemiology
I'm a doctoral student in epidemiology and I have become familiar with a number of introductory textbooks in epidemiology over the past few years.I think Rothman's book is one of the best of the lot.I found it particularly useful as a bridge between basic introductory textbooks such as Gordis' "Epidemiology" and Rothman & Greenland's "Modern Epidemiology".Rothman's introductory text does an excellent job of selectively covering important topics in epidemiology at a level of detail that is appropriate to its intended audience.The writing style is relaxed yet precise and lucid.His coverage of study designs and bias is particularly illuminating.Some topics such as the interpretation of diagnostic tests and screening are not covered.However, as an introduction to the principles and concepts of epidemiology, the book serves its purpose very well.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not Bad, Mr. Rothman.... Not Bad.
Rothman's introductory Epidemiology book is quite user friendly in that it is well organized, clear, and concise. Some students may run into some difficulties, however, if they rely solely on this book as their main resource for their graduate level work. Rothman only scratches the surface in some areas, which may be frustrating at times...The book certainly lives up to its title of being "An Introduction." Unfortunately, that means starving graduate students will have to splurge on "Epidemiology: The Body" and "Epidemiology: The Conclusion," if they want to gain a truly in-depth and comprehensive perspective. Unfortunately, these books, to my knowledge, have yet to be written. Nevertheless, Rothman's book is definitely useful for acquiring a basic understanding of the fundamental concepts in epidemiology.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best conceptual epi book published to date
To my knowledge, this is the best and simplest textbook in epidemiology that has been published to date. I could compare it with practically all the 'mainstream' textbooks that I have been using, more or less recent, and more or less detailed textbooks.

4-0 out of 5 stars great help to resident
As a resident, I frequently prepared journal clubs, where we have to carefully discuss and scrutinize studies. I gained some introduction from "Appleton and Lange's Review of Epidemiology and Biostatistics for the USMLE". But preparing for journal clubs was quite different. There are many of statistical and epidemiological terminology in each article, some I am familiar with, but others are confusing and new. In this very helpful "dictionary" I was able to find more than 95% of the terms with brief definition and good short explanation that successfully allowed me to soundly evaluate the studies and prepare an impressive brief, neat handouts. The great thing about this dictionary was its well organization and ease to find what you are looking for. My friends frequently borrowed when they have to prepare their journal clubs, and found it really helpful.4-0 out of 5 stars "The" dictionary of epidemiology
One of the major problems with studying the field of epidemiology is the inconsistency of terminology that is used. This is because the field is relatively young, is actively evolving and has developed from multipleother disciplines including the social sciences as well as the medicalsciences and statistics. As a result, it can be both confusing andfrustrating for the student. This dictionary is the "bible" ofterminology for the fireld, in part because there is no other. This shouldbe an absolute requirement for the shelf of every student in the field ofepidemiology. Even experienced epidemiologists are encouraged to have acopy for reference purposes. The only caution is that a new edition is dueout soon. It can only be better than the first edition.Get it. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars just view the excerpt
I encourage you to view the excerpt of this book; it will help you, more than any customer review, to see if this book is what you expect or imagine. In the excerpt, I found that chapter 2 starts with a bulleted list of items, without any introduction, any motivation, any explanation, nor comment. Next, using the same style (just displaying a list of bulleted items), "develops" each item of the bulleted list. I feel that this type of book would not give me any help to write anything; it would be useless for me.
5-0 out of 5 stars One of the four essential books for the technical writer
This is the best style guide for technical writing I have ever found.It gives more every day practical information than any of the other technical writing books and gives that information in a highly usable format.5-0 out of 5 stars Very useful
While Robert A. Day's How to Write & Publish a Scientific Paper givesa good overview of the writing and publishing process on a macro levelregarding organization and presentation of material, Science and TechnicalWriting provides great detailed advice on a micro level. Philip Rubensgives very clear instruction on paragraphing, grammar, punctuation andspelling as well as the intricacies of how to present numbers, mathematicalsymbols and scientific notation. In addition, there are illustratedguidelines on how to design a variety documents such as brochures, manualsand newsletters right down to the page-level including representinginformation in charts, tables and diagrams.The book itself iswell-designed and well-organized giving testament to its own advice. Thisis a good general reference for both writers and editors of science andtechnical documentation. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars So fascinating!
If only my reviews could be as interesting as this book, but then maybe if I didn't buy so many books, I'd have more time to include the details on what makes such books as this so wonderful to own.One detail I remember from Kotulak's writing is the information on how the brain fixes itself.When in "formal" school, I was taught so many things that simply were not true.I'm so happy to learn that things I suspected as truth (which went contrary to what was being taught) are now being discovered (or should I say "uncovered"?) as the way things really are.

4-0 out of 5 stars Must read for parents
A very informative book shedding light on cognitive developement especially in children, but also expanding into violence and recovery after injuries inflicted on the brain. A great stepping stone into a very fascinating subject.The book is slightly repetitive thus the missing star, but don't worry it is still very readable.

5-0 out of 5 stars Section 1: A must for new Parents, Grandparents, and Teacher
Section 1 is presented in an easy, non-technical way that permits any person keen on helping develop the young mind, develop it to its maximum capacity.Research is well documented. Educators should be guided by such presentations in the ways school curricula are designed. The sections on brain injury and healing are a little more technical, but point to a very exciting short term future in addressing neruological problems. The concluding remarks refocus the reader on just how important very early and continuous education is important to us. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Pdq Statistics (PDQ Series)
In these times, you can't walk in the streets without hear or read some statistics, in the paper, in the market or everywhere.
5-0 out of 5 stars In a class of its own!
This book is the only statistics book of its type.For each section covering a specific statistical method (from simple methods to those you may not even cover in your PhD training), a concise 2-5 page summary is presented.The goal is not to enable the reader to calculate any of these statistics, but to understand conceptually what each statistic means.This is where it can fill in information other statistics texts never get to.A student (or researcher!) who can churn out factorial ANOVA results, but doesn't truly understand what they mean can turn to this book for clarity.It's simple (for statistics), it's short, it's clear, and you have to love a book that is dedicated "To the many people who have made this book both possible and necessary -- authors of other statistics books"!

This book is incredably well-written. Although I had not read a statistics text in 12 years, this book balanced theoretical development, explanation, and examples in such a way that it was actually easy to read. The organization of the book makes looking up a particular topic very easy. The reference list is extensive. The best thing about the book is the set of graphics and maps to illustrate the mathematics, modeling, and outcomes. This book is a must-have for anyone involved in spatial statistics, disease clustering, epidemiology. ... Read more
