Dr. Paul has prepared a very concise review of epidemiology for students and physicians. Epidemiology is presented as a science concerned with the circumstances under which people become ill. It is presented from the medical point of view and not as a statistical science. The text is divided into three parts, covering (1) definitions and concepts; (2) principles; and (3) sample diseases.
Drawing on his own vast experience as an epidemiologist and teacher, the author has produced a well written and interesting text which will be of value to students and practicing physicians.
