"This book fills an important gap in the literature of veterinary epidemiology, and it does so in an extremely effective way. It is very practical, and guides the reader through each of the areas of epidemiology in a very well organized and clearly structured manner, providing first a framework for understanding the topic, then taking the reader through the steps required to apply the approach to a real world problem. It deserves a prominent place as part of the kit carried by every field veterinarian, and experienced epidemiologists will also find it a valuable reference."--Professor Roger S. Morris
