Reviews

"A very interesting and understandable, yet quite detailed, account of techniques used in a rapidly advancing field." 5* review on Amazon.co.uk
"This is a sobering must-read for anyone who wishes to know how genetic epidemiology may change how we understand, treat or prevent human disease." Robert Elston, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine
"This book should be incredibly useful to students and researchers at all levels in genetic epidemiology. For students it offers an eminently readable and accessible foundation, and for researchers, a superb source to fill in missing pieces in our knowledge." Ezra Susser, Professor of Epidemiology and Psychiatry, Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University, and New York State Psychiatric Institute
