Reviews of the second edition: 'Katz provides a comprehensive
review of multivariable analysis to illuminate an often confusing
topic for clinicians, particularly clinician scientists. The
chapter on the assumptions of multivariable analysis provides
excellent examples and tips throughout.' Myra A. Kleinpeter,
Journal of the National Medical Association
'This book had an enthusiastic first outing, and certainly this second edition is worth the price for a good reference.' Kentucky Medical Journal
