“If you think that statistics has nothing to say about what you do or how you could do it better, then you are either wrong or in need of a more interesting job. Stephen Senn explains here how statistics determines many decisions about medical care, from allocating resources for health, to determining which drugs to license, to cause-and-effect in relation to disease.”

Most books about medical statistics are ‘unreadable’ – either being intended as primers to teach you, or once taught, to act as a reference and recipe book. This book is different and using only the minimum of basic mathematics takes you to fascinating corners of medical statistics – providing historical and technical insights on the way. It’s very well written, never condescends and is really engaging. Five statistical stars from me for this one.
