. . . the assertion which outstrips evidence is not only a blunder but a crime.—T.H. Huxley, Science and Culture, 1880.

Clinical Evidence is a book about evidence only, sans recommendation and judgment. This is because the decision to apply evidence toward patient care rests on the clinician, in keeping with the tenets of evidence-based medicine. The pedigree for this opus is impressive; its editorial list includes names familiar to readers of clinical epidemiology and evaluative sciences. The BMJ (British Medical Journal) publishing group, American College of Physicians-American Society of Internal Medicine, and a cadre of multinational reviewers have created a tight mosaic with bright future prospects.
