Foundations of Clinical Research

We had looked at previous versions and were glad to see that it had been updated. It has been an excellent source for the medical students, residents, fellows and some research nurses at our facility. We have been having a series of seminars on how to get research projects started.

Great Book

This is one of the few books that really goes into the foundations of clinical research. I use it very regularly as a basic reference for my undergrad statistics class. The book starts with the basis of research which is logic and thinking. I have seen very few research books that start with this type of an introduction to research and just that in my opinion makes it a great book to start, especially if somebody is being introduced to the subject for the first time.

Practical, and clearly written

Although I have used this text as a reference (vs. reading it all the way through, or for a class) I have found myself returning to it often. In fact, I purchased it only because I had started to wear out the copy I had borrowed from a friend...and she was missing it because she used it frequently, too. The best aspect of this text is the way the authors use examples relevant to clinical research for nearly every statistical decision. No more extrapolating from educational research, medical research...I don't usually have that much imagination! Good book.

User-friendly and well-organized

This is a book that I have used often through my graduate career. It served as a great textbook for a course I was taking and as supplementary material for other other courses on Statistics, Design and Research Methods. Well-organized and easy-to-read, it has become my first line-of-defense for all things related to research design. It covers the material in adequate detail so you have a good jumping off point in case you need to grab your SAS manual or your Stats text.

Outstanding clarity and comprehensiveness

This book can hardly be recommended enough to both beginning and advanced researchers. It provides an extraordinary breadth and depth of information about research methodology, implementation and statistical analysis. It is written in a clear straightforward style that makes arcane topics understanble without oversimplification. Congratulations to the authors on a difficult job well done!
