Essential Medical Statistics from the Author: Betty R. Kirkwood. Blackwell Publishing is delighted to announce that this book has been Highly Commended in the 2004 BMA Medical Book Competition. Here is the judges' summary of this book: "This is a technical book on a technical subject but presented in a delightful way. There are many books on statistics for doctors but there are few that are excellent and this is certainly one of them. Statistics is not an easy subject to teach or write about. The authors have succeeded in producing a book that is as good as it can get. For the keen student who does not want a book for mathematicians, this is an excellent first book on medical statistics." Essential Medical Statistics is a classic amongst medical statisticians. An introductory textbook, it presents statistics with a clarity and logic that demystifies the subject, while providing a comprehensive coverage of advanced as well as basic methods. The second edition of Essential Medical Statistics has been comprehensively revised and updated to include modern statistical methods and modern approaches to statistical analysis, while retaining the approachable and non-mathematical style of the first edition. The book now includes full coverage of the most commonly used regression models, multiple linear regression, logistic regression, Poisson regression and Cox regression, as well as a chapter on general issues in regression modelling. In addition, new chapters introduce more advanced topics such as meta-analysis, likelihood, bootstrapping and robust standard errors, and analysis of clustered data. Aimed at students of medical statistics, medical researchers, public health practitioners and practising clinicians using statistics in their daily work, the book is designed as both a teaching and a reference text. The format of the book is clear with highlighted formulae and worked examples, so that all concepts are presented in a simple, practical and easy-to-understand way. The second edition enhances the emphasis on choice of appropriate methods with new chapters on strategies for analysis and measures of association and impact.

Pathology For Surgeons In Training 3ed from the Author: Dugald Gardner. Previous editions of this book have proved indispensable for trainee surgeons preparing for the MRCS and AFRCS examinations. This extensively revised new edition is presented in a compelling new style and in a larger format. Beginning with a 'route-map' showing 'how to use this book', the text offers concise accounts of the core topics in pathology required of surgeons in training. There is particular emphasis on tissue pathology but full account is taken of relevant aspects of microbiology, haematology, immunology and clinical chemistry. Tables of normal laboratory values are included. Each major disorder is examined from the point of view of Cause, Structure, and Behaviour. Genetics, molecular biology and imaging receive balanced attention as do transfusion, telepathology and audit. The use of computers is outlined and suggestions given on access to Internet sources for learning purposes. The needs of trainees in countries outside Europe have been considered carefully. Illustrations have been selected to provide a clear, pictorial account of complex points. The inclusion of biographies of surgical pioneers adds interest and enables candidates to put their knowledge into context. A special feature is a series of marginal 'signposts' in the form 'Now Read' that take candidates to interrelated topics quickly and easily. There is extensive cross-referencing and a comprehensive index.
