While Oleckno provides thorough treatment of the more customary aspects of conventional and modern epidemiology, he also introduces several important design and analytical issues that are only rarely approached in fundamental epidemiology textbooks. Concepts as diverse as competing risks, maturation, futility, and the prevalence and bias effects in the context of screening are just a few examples of the broad range of concepts covered in this text. A comprehensive glossary contains detailed definitions of over 700 terms used throughout the 14 chapters comprising the textbook.

Sure to become the backbone of a diverse range of academic programs in the health professions! Epidemiology as a discipline has evolved over the years from a relatively obscure field in public health and preventive medicine to one that has gained increased prominence in all the health sciences, including health education, health administration, environmental health, allied health, and nursing. This comprehensive, user friendly, and academically sound textbook covers the basic principles and methods of epidemiology in such a way that will appeal to a broad range of undergraduate and graduate students in the health professions. Beyond its clear, concise writing, Essential Epidemiology offers unique pedagogic aids, such as an algorithm to help students identify epidemiologic study designs, a discussion of problems students typically encounter in calculating and interpreting incidence rates, and annotated step by step solutions to numerical problems. In addition, the text introduces topics sometimes ignored in other texts, such as hybrid studies, the controversy surrounding the use of hypothesis testing versus confidence intervals, and the differences between rate and risk measurements. Helpful features contained in each chapter include: 1) highlighted learning objectives and a brief overview; 2) study questions and practical exercises; 3) bulleted summary to stress key points; 4) list of key terms, all boldfaced within text; 5) useful tables and figures to clarify important material; 6) boxed exhibits with engaging supplementary information; 7) sample problems with step by step solutions to illustrate essential calculations; and 8) easily remembered mathematical symbols to aid memorization of formulas.

This is an excellent epidemiology book. It gives a good overview of epidemiology and has a practical slant to it. The things I like about it:
* It's easy to read and understand. It has a non-academic style of writing that's easy to follow.
* It not only explains what the different epidemiological parameters are, but teaches the reader how to calculate them. Case studies are then given demonstrating the calculations with finer points highlighted and explained.
* The organisation of topics in the book is logical and clear. Much better than previous epidemiology texts I've read.

I purchased this book for my son who is in 8th grade and studying for Science Olympiad. It's more readable than many other epidemiology texts and has great definitions in it.

This book was in much poorer condition than I expected. Bent pages and tons of highlighting and underlining. I don't mind a little bit of highlighting and underlining but this book had enough to cause distraction. Disappointing.
great
