About the Author

Professor Antony Stewart, FFPH, professor in public health at Staffordshire University; honorary consultant in public health at Public Health England; clinical research specialty lead for public health at NIHR Clinical Research Network: West Midlands; and academic director of the Centre for Health and Development (CHAD), UK


Stewart (public health, Staffordshire Univ., UK) offers an excellent reference for undergraduate students. This book aims to check comprehension at various points throughout the text before proceeding further. For example, between the first section (data and statistics) and the second (epidemiology), Stewart writes, 'If there is anything that you are unsure about, now might be a good time to go back and re-read the particular section in which it appears'(p. 105). Charming asides such as this easily guide readers through the subject, though the simple language and clear examples may be sufficient on the first read through. At the end of the work, practice problems are presented with solution guides to test comprehension. --J. P. Bourgeois, Nicholls State University Summing Up: Recommended. Lower- and upper-division undergraduates. CHOICE Praise for previous editions: "Extremely well-written ... the clearest book I have read in relation to two of the most difficult disciplines to understand in absolute essential text for all students and beginner researchers." -BMA Medical Book Awards Programme "A spectacular approach to writing a book of this nature. I have found it to be very useful in my day-to-day work activities ... It gives a detailed orientation for beginners and a great review for those wanting to look up a topic without the exhausting details." -Jocelyn Murray, Epidemiologist, NASA "This is probably the clearest and best presented statistics book I have read. I will definitely be keeping a copy on my bookshelf!" -Clinical Oncology "An excellent book - clear and well written, providing a really good basic grounding in both statistics and epidemiology." -Nick Spencer, Professor of Child Health, Warwick University
