Book Review

"Shostak has provided a great resource to both new programmers and seasoned industry professionals with this second edition. This book is the best window into the pharmaceutical research industry from a programmer's perspective. Shostak's ability to organize, present, and illustrate gives the reader a complete understanding of what a clinical analysis programmer will encounter in this profession. If you are a syntax junkie, a newbie wanting to see if the industry is for you, or if you are interested in better understanding topics discussed in your project team meetings (i.e., Time-to-Event analysis, Forest plots), this programming book will interest you and expand your knowledge base."
