Reviews

Review of the first edition: 'Overall, the book is well written, and the material is rich and carefully organised ... the book is a welcome reference manual or practical guide for practitioners of statistical methods in (but not limited to) epidemiological and clinical studies. The book's main value is in its rather comprehensive presentation of a collection of longitudinal data analyses arising from different research questions. In this sense, the book is unique. Some practitioners of statistics may have struggled to learn longitudinal data analysis by reading manuals of software packages. This book is potentially of great benefit to them.' Journal of the American Statistical Association
