Journal of Mental Health Policy and Economics Review from previous edition 'The book has some important characteristics that differentiate it from others in the field. Another unique feature is the presentation of tutorials that are highlighted in boxes.'

Medical Decision Making 'This book suited my needs to perfection and is an ideal accompaniment to a course that combines methodology with critical appraisal and hands-on practical training in using these techniques.

George W Torrance, PhD, Professor Emeritus, McMaster University, Hamilton, Canada, is one of the founding fathers of the field of economic evaluation in health care. His numerous publications include both contributions to theory and methods, some of which he has pioneered, and applications in many different clinical areas. He co-authored the original guidelines for the economic evaluation of health care treatments and programmes for Canada (1994) and for the U.S. Public Health Service (1996). For his pioneering work in the field, Dr. Torrance has received lifetime achievement awards from three international scientific societies: the Society for Medical Decision Making, the International Society of Quality of Life Research, and the International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research. He has been inducted into the McMaster University Health Science's Community of Distinction.
