    Editorial Reviews

    "Gehlbach's forte is his ability to dissect effectively major published articles dealing with common topics. He distills the original data, analyzes strengths and faults, and reduces the authors' message to universally understandable denominators...Interpreting the Medical Literature is about understanding the methodology and logic of scientific inquiry. It teaches interpretational skills needed for understanding medical articles. It has a long and deserving tradition of clarity in discussing research designs. Its inimitable merit is the inclusion and analysis of illustrative examples from major published articles. It is light on jargon, sparing in statistical complexity, and solid in emphasis of the fundamentals. Anyone with trepidations about the complexities of epidemiology and EBM must reach for this gentle book for an auspicious start."--Journal of the American Medical Association
