In the nearly three years since the publication of the ActivEpi companion text, the authors received several suggestions to produce an abbreviated version that narrows the discussion to the most "essential" principals and methods. A Pocket Guide to Epidemiology contains less than half as many pages as the ActivEpi Companion Text and is a stand-alone introductory text on the basic principals and concepts of epidemiology.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"A Pocket Guide to Epidemiology is a useful addition to the ready reference genre of epidemiological texts. ... The text offers a comprehensive look at the salient fundamentals of epidemiology. ... Organized logically and replete with classic examples, the text offers a firm foundation in epidemiological methodology. ... this guide offers more examples and may be a better choice for the reader who desires to become better acquainted with epidemiology." (Gregory E. Gilbert, Journal of the American Statistical Association, Vol. 62 (1), 2008)

"The book would be very suitable for public health students, professionals, and teachers interested in time-efficient and enjoyable introduction to epidemiology....this book gives a good basis in the theory behind epidemiolgy and I highly recommend it as a first step into this discipline." (Journal of Applied Statistics, March 2008)

"This book ... is a simple-to-read introductory text dealing with the most basic concepts of epidemiology. ... It is an abbreviated, stand-alone version that narrows the discussion to the most `essential' principles and methods in epidemiology. ... The book would be very suitable for public health students, professionals, and teachers interested in time-efficient and enjoyable introduction to epidemiology. ... In short, this book gives a good basis in the theory behind epidemiology and I highly recommend it as a first step into this discipline." (Faisel Yunus, Journal of Applied Statistics, Vol. 35 (3), 2008)

"The book provides a unified comprehensive coverage of the design, outcome and analysis issues of epidemiological studies. ... an excellent guide for `the public health student or professional, clinician, health journalist and anyone ... interested in learning what epidemiology is all about...'. Many learners ... will find this book refreshingly easy to understand. ... educators will also find it a useful resource for any student who often finds epidemiological concepts bewildering. ... a worthwhile purchase and a must-have for any health sciences library." (Lehana Thabane, International Statistical Review, Vol. 75 (1), 2007)
