As the title warns, the material discussed in the above book is "elementary statistics with applications in medicine" and not medical statistics. The text is essentially a condensation of an earlier book by the same author (with Cowden), entitled Applied General Statistics, which deals with economic and business statistics. The principal changes are a fuller discussion of statistical tests for proportions, the use of examples with a medical flavor, and omission of much of the material in the earlier book. Such superficial changes are not enough to adapt the material to the needs of doctors and medical students.
