From the reviews of the second edition:

"What is the difference between evaluation and research? This updated second edition provides valuable introductory material exploring the differences and similarities, and usefully covers many of the statistical and other techniques common to both. The first edition has become a standard text for many courses on the subject and for many informaticians undertaking evaluation studies in health informatics. No doubt this latest edition will be similarly popular." (Dr. Peter J. Murray, British Journal of Healthcare & Information Management, Vol. 24 (2), March, 2007)
