"This book would be useful for pathologists at any stage of their career, from residents through experienced practicing and/or academic pathologists. ... I really enjoyed updating my knowledge and use of statistics in my everyday practice. I know I will be lending this book to my staff whenever we embark on new method validation/verification, twice-yearly method comparison and analytical measurement range verification, etc. This is a most useful book to have at hand in any clinical laboratory."
