(Journal of Biopharmaceutical Statistics, 2011)
"The authors, overall, have done a good job of revising their first edition, addressing the critical reviews as well as expanding and updating their coverage . . . In summary, this is a good book, focusing on medical diagnosis as the name promises, presenting a wealth of methods in detail with good discussion."
(Booknews, 1 June 2011)
"Early chapters are accessible to readers with a basic knowledge of statistical and medical terminology, and the second section addresses data analysts with basic training in biostatistics. Later chapters assume deeper background in statistics, but the examples should be accessible to all. The 2002 edition has been updated throughout, and three new case studies have been added."
