"Few authors share Dr. Muennig's gift for reducing a complex topic to a series of practical steps that mere mortals can easily follow. This instruction manual for cost-effectiveness research, as the author accurately describes it, provides numerous tips and real-world examples. The book is essential reading for anyone designing a pharmacoeconomic or comparative-effectiveness clinical study." (Journal of Clinical Research Best Practices, November 2010)
