Here are a few comments on Basic Skills in Statistics: A Guide for Healthcare Professionals from readers to give you an idea of the calibre of this book:
`The authors are to be congratulated for providing non-experts with such a clear introduction to statistics.'
From the foreword by Professor Philip Hannaford, Grampian Health Board Professor of Primary Care, University of Aberdeen
`Packed full of useful key messages and an excellent glossary of terms, this should be an essential reference book for any budding researchers and anyone wishing to have a greater understanding of research papers.'
