This classic, field-defining textbook, now in its sixth edition, provides the most comprehensive guidance available for anyone needing up-to-date information in pharmacoepidemiology. This edition has been fully revised and updated throughout and continues to provide a rounded view on all perspectives from academia, industry and regulatory bodies, addressing data sources, applications and methodologies with great clarity.
"This book is no surprise. The first four editions were excellent and this one continues that tradition of excellence. This is the only book on pharmacoepidemiology that anyone needs. Students in an elementary level course may not need this update, but it is far superior and much improved over the previous editions. Persons actively involved in the discipline should want to have this latest edition since it incorporates all of the latest research designs and thinking in the field."

"This is well written and well researched. The editor, Dr. Brian L. Strom, is a national figure in medicine and the chapter authors are respected professionals in the fields they represent. The book also has the added feature of a seven-page glossary of terms, and a large 23-page index of authors and topics."
