PDQ Epidemiology is an exceptionally clear and highly irreverent revie w of the important concepts of medical statistics and their impact on public health policy. As the authors note in their preface: "...the ro le of Epidemiology these days fills the gaping chasm between the scien tific wisdom of the wet laboratory and the clinical wisdom of the ward ." By translating the terminology of epidemiology into easy to underst and language, the common sense of the methods emerges and makes sense to students. Featuring unique examples, titled Convoluted Reasoning or Anti-intellectual Pomposity Detectors (CRAP Detectors), the text help s the reader identify studies with basic flaws in design or research.
