This handy, easy to read text does the job of presenting clinical research as an approachable task. The authors’ objectives are simply to present a practical and comprehensive approach to modern research, which they accomplish. This book will appeal to its intended audience of medical students, residents, and fellows. It is also relevant to serious undergraduate and graduate students looking for a primer on “what to do” and “where to get started” on a research project. Lactation consultants looking for an elementary but comprehensive textbook will be pleased with the offering. In fact, all a lactation consultant has to do is to substitute medical examples with lactation-related examples to feel right at home in learning about how to do clinical research.

The main focus of this book is to outline every step in conducting research, from choosing a topic to submitting a manuscript for publication. I especially enjoyed the tone of the book, as though a very articulate advisor were walking students through the research process. Twenty-two contributors tackle issues such as experimental design, statistics, navigating the Institutional Review Board results and discussion, as well as preparing a manuscript. The book is meticulous and succinct, with just the right amount of information to thoroughly cover all aspects vital to a proper research design.

The format is logical and detailed. The writing style is didactic and concise while engaging and even entertaining. Overall, this book uses clear descriptive language and is well written. The illustrations are useful for imparting the variety of ways that data can be presented based upon the statistical methods used.

Of particular importance is Chapter 12, The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Scientific Review that details Ten Commandments for Grant Success. As the NIH is arguably the most esteemed source for grant support and upon which many grants are modeled, the new—and even the seasoned—researcher will benefit from the insightful tips for grant writing success. These tips, while crafted with the NIH in mind, may increase success on all grant-writing attempts.

I recommend this book to both its intended audience and to lactation advisors who may choose to emulate the format when working with their own students. Once read, it can be referred to easily and my own copy has been systematically dog-eared.
