This is the third edition of a book that serves as an excellent guide to reading the health science literature. The authors' primary goal is to provide a practical, step-by-step approach for students and practitioners as they read the health literature. A subtle but significant title change from "medical literature" to "health science literature" occurred with the publication of this edition. This change reflects the authors' desire to include public health students and practitioners, graduate-level nurses, and other health professionals among their audience.
