'... for students who know very little about statistics and mathematics this book is a welcome resource on the techniques used to analyse time-to-event data. These techniques are introduced in a non-technical way accompanied with many good examples. Also the included R-code gives a good introduction to the practical analysis.' Biometrical Journal 'This book provides an easy-to-read introduction to the fundamental concepts applicable to survival analysis without relying on mathematical prerequisites. ... [the] text gives a thorough introduction to the area of survival analysis for those with little prior statistical knowledge.' International Journal of Epidemiology
