Priceless paintings are created from simple small brushstrokes. In the same way, epidemiologists collect simple inconspicuous data and craft it into multifaceted pictures of disease in a human population. Such pictures frequently enable us to identify and control a disease before its causative agent can be identified or specific pharmacological treatment developed. This is the art of epidemiology, and it is expertly presented by the authors of Infectious Disease Epidemiology.
