Population Health Science

August 4, 2016 Oxford University Press 978-0190459376

“A major milestone in this emergent discipline. It should be required introductory reading for students in public health, health policy, health economics, behavioral sciences, and related fields. This not a repackaging of traditional public health methodologies. Rather, it is an emergent discussion of nine unifying theoretical principles of population health science, complete with excellent case studies, that will extend and inform the practice of both public health and preventative medicine.” ― Julie Louise Gerberding, MD, MPH, Chief Patient Officer and Executive Vice President of Strategic Communications, Global Public Policy, and Population Health, Merck & Co., Inc.; former Director, US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Introductory Adaptive Trial Designs – A Practical Guide with R

“Two strengths of this text are the numerous examples that are included throughout and the inclusion of open-ended problems at the end of chapters to help readers work through some of the concepts on their own. Another strength of this text is its attempt to cover as many adaptive designs as possible…This text is certainly a useful reference that covers approaches to adaptive clinical trial design, but would only be suitable for those with sufficient graduate-level statistical training and background in clinical trial design and programming.” ― Thomas M.

Principles of Scientific Methods

July 22, 2014 Chapman & Hall/CRC 978-1482238099

“This book is designed not only for a conceptual understanding of scientific fundamental principles behind the methods, but also to introduce some innovative applications from different fields. The book fits for a wide range of audiences who do not have any mathematics or statistics backgrounds. As written by an experienced statistician from pharmaceutical industry, the book provides an insightful overview of the current practices of experimentation and statistical inferences in pharmaceutical drug development, and also the concepts and rationales of the innovative methods beyond the pharmaceutical research and development. This is a useful reference book to inspire the readers of creative thinking by the great ideas behind the scientific methods.”Journal of Biopharmaceutical Statistics, 2015

So Far Away: A Daughter’s Memoir of Life, Loss, and Love

November 18, 2011 Vanderbilt University Press 082651796X

“For me, part of the brilliance of So Far Away is that, wrapped up in the exquisitely well-described uniqueness of Hartmann’s story about her parents and herself, are substantial insights about anticipatory grief, grief following a parent’s death or decline, parent-child relationships at the end of life and after parents die, the links of personal grief to marital relationships, what can be accomplished by writing about parents and parent death, depression, and much more. And although the book is only about one family from one family member’s perspective, it offers fascinating insights about families in many areas, including lies and secrets in families, family communication, and what might be called ‘relationship traps.’ Another part of the brilliance of the book is that the author tunes in so well on her own thoughts and feelings, that it becomes a stimulating book about the psychology of fear, guilt, anger, love, duty, neediness, independence, memory, and obliviousness.” ― Paul C. Rosenblatt, University of Minnesota

“In short, Worst Case Bioethics offers a valuable consideration of how public health policy is sometimes shaped by fear in a counterproductive manner. The book is well written, well reasoned, and persuasive. I recommend it highly to all who are interested in bioethics, public health policy, or national security policy." — Science "Annas persuasively argues in Worst Case Bioethics that basing policy on extreme nightmare possibilities leads to a distortion of fundamental ethical principles and legal protections." — Lancet "Most readers interested in these topics will find this a creative and insightful rubric for examining different aspects of US healthcare and law.” — Dr. R MacDougall, Saint Louis University

Rich and mind-opening testimony to the profound, even chthonic power of tales well told.” Booklist
