This book updates and complements the highly successful Methods for Economic Evaluations that myriads of health economists affectionately refer to as 'the blue book' . . . The original work was a landmark publication and set high standards for any future volume. After reading the new (red covered) book, I predict that people will mention it in the same breath . . . This is a book to keep and refer to; both health economists and health policy makers will undoubtedly benefit from reading and having this book on their shelf. * International Journal of Epidemiology, 31, 2002 *
The text is well organized . . . a useful additional text for any health-care researcher as it covers a wide range of theoretical issues that are fundamental in economic evaluation. * Hospital Medicine *
