Praise for Tom’s workshop on interpreting and reporting statistics

“Thank you for making statistics understoodable!” From a physician at Sichuan Medical University, Chengdu, China

The course was far more interesting and accessible than I anticipated. I would take another course from Mr. Lang and recommend my colleagues do the same. From an American Medical Writers Association conference

Excellent workshop – better than all of my grad school stat classes. From a physician-researcher at the Cleveland Clinic

Brilliant! Tom’s command of the subject is amazing. The value of this workshop is priceless . . . From a student at the University of Chicago’s course on statistics for medical writers and editors

This [statistics] workshop was well thought out and very well led. Tom made an intimidating topic very approachable, and he was organized, kept things moving, and was very clear. Thank you!! From a European medical writer

I do not know of anybody who could have explained this material to this level of detail and audience understanding. Amazing! Thank you! From a Japanese researcher

It was perfectly focused for the target audience – it was just what I needed for a basic understanding of the statistics I run into at work. From a medical writer in the pharmaceutical industry

A remarkable book covering all aspects of planning, writing and submitting clinical journal articles for publication. The very thorough treatment makes this well worth reading for any student beginning a healthcare career, or the clinician wanting to produce more persuasive and rigorous publications.
