My textbooks are widely used, appearing on reading lists in many UK and overseas universities. They have received excellent reviews and have succeeded in helping students to understand complex subjects, as well as providing a reference for practitioners.
Basic Statistics and Epidemiology
This popular guide is now in its 4th edition - the previous edition won the Basis of Medicine category of the 2011 BMA Medical Book Awards.
It was written to be an easy to understand basic primer, and has been greeted with acclaim - here is some of the praise received:
"Extremely well-written … the clearest book I have read in relation to two of the most difficult disciplines to understand in research…an absolute essential text for all students and beginner researchers."
―BMA Medical Book Awards Programme
"A spectacular approach to writing a book of this nature. I have found it to be very useful in my day-to-day work activities … It gives a detailed orientation for beginners and a great review for those wanting to look up a topic without the exhausting details."
―Jocelyn Murray, Epidemiologist, NASA
"This is probably the clearest and best presented statistics book I have read. I will definitely be keeping a copy on my bookshelf!"
"An excellent book - clear and well written, providing a really good basic grounding in both statistics and epidemiology."
―Nick Spencer, Professor of Child Health, Warwick University
“Stewart offers an excellent reference for undergraduate students. This book aims to check comprehension at various points throughout the text before proceeding further. For example, between the first section (data and statistics) and the second (epidemiology), Stewart writes, 'If there is anything that you are unsure about, now might be a good time to go back and re-read the particular section in which it appears (p.105). Charming asides such as this easily guide readers through the subject, though the simple language and clear examples may be sufficient on the first read through. At the end of the work, practice problems are presented with solution guides to test comprehension.” — J. P. Bourgeois, Nicholls State University. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower- and upper-division undergraduates. CHOICE
