It looks at the application of and provides a critique of statistics, encouraging an evidence-based approached to medical statistics. Through the critical evaulation of the published medical literature, the text will enable both
students and researchers to understand the appropriate use of descriptive and inferential statistics in study design and when writing papers. The reproduction of short excerpts of material from published papers or summaries of their results are included and they are considered in a question and answer format. The reader can either read through the series of cases and follow through worked examples or work through the book themselves as a series of exercises. The questions are clearly graded,
