This concise book presents evidence-based medicine to neophytes in simplified, friendly language. Basic concepts and application of research statistics are presented in simple sequences that are non-threatening even to the mathematically challenged. The authors emphasize two important aspects of appraisal: 1) how directly it provides an answer to the clinical problem at hand and 2) how well results can be generalized to various populations.
