Críticas:

"The third edition of Dave Collett’s book enhances its position as a superb introduction to the area of survival analysis for medical statisticians, academic statisticians, their students, and statistically aware medical practitioners. It is easy to read and has clear explanations and enough mathematical material to satisfy the statistician but not too much that it would deter others. The extra material added since the second edition keeps this book at the forefront."
—Dr. Trevor Cox, Director of Statistics, Cancer Research UK Liverpool Cancer Trials Unit

"This is an excellent book, which should appeal to anyone involved in quantitative medical research or research training. Earlier editions have already established this remarkable book as a standard reference to one of the most important topics in medical research: survival analysis. In the latest edition, the author has widened the scope of his coverage of the subject far beyond the standard Cox analysis that still dominates the medical literature. He does this with the same lucid style and systematic harmonization of theory and practice as before. The key equations are provided, but not allowed to distract the practitioner. Examples are used both to explain all the important concepts and methodologies and to motivate the theory."
—Mark Woodward, Professor of Statistics and Epidemiology, Nuffield Department of Population Health, University of Oxford

"Dr. Collett has provided an invaluable resource for all students of biostatistics and epidemiology, whether new learners or long-time professionals in the field. He covers the fundamentals of survival analysis by providing thorough treatments of the theory and underpinnings of the concepts while making the material accessible to the reader by providing numerous real-world examples that nicely illustrate the concepts. In addition, he covers many recent additions to the field ensuring that the text is up to date and relevant to today’s practicing biostatistician. Dr. Collett’s text will be an indispensable resource to all who are charged with drawing proper inference from survival data."
—Jon J. Snyder, PhD, Director of Transplant Epidemiology, Minneapolis Medical Research Foundation

"As a master’s student in biostatistics, with a medical background, I missed having a good reference book for survival analysis that is interlarded with clinical examples. Albeit too late for my studies, I was glad to see the appearance of the first edition of this book. It has been a good friend since that time and the second edition—again full of examples of medical data—fulfilled all expectations. … this newest edition remains fresh as a daisy and will certainly join its older brothers in my bookcase."
—Jacqueline M. Smits, MD, PhD

Praise for the Second Edition:
Collett has succeeded admirably in updating the first edition of his book … [This book] has numerous, carefully worked, real-data examples. There is enough new material in the second edition to justify its purchase by someone who already owns the first edition.
Journal of the American Statistical Association, Sept. 2004, Vol. 99, No. 467

this text is a fine example of technical writing and remains highly recommended for both students and researchers requiring an introduction to survival analysis in a medical context.
Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Issue 167 (4)

… a well written practical guide with a demonstration of SAS software to perform survival analysis. … It can be used as a textbook in a graduate-level survival analysis course … .
Journal of Statistical Computation & Simulation, Vol. 74, No. 5, May 2004

It is thorough and authoritative, covers all essential theory and contains many practical tips.
Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Vol. 157

Praise for the First Edition:
… a useful book that has particular merit for the applied statistician. Chapters 1-6 and 11 alone supply a wonderful introduction to survival analysis. The mathematical statistician unfamiliar with survival analysis who desires to become quickly abreast will also gain much from the book.
Journal of the American Statistical Association

Students found the presentation of the material and examples to be very helpful … an excellent book … I highly recommend this book for practising statisticians engaged in analysing univariate survival data. … This book will not only serve the statistical practitioner in the medical and pharmaceutical research areas well, but will be a convenient text for the lecturer aiming to include a useful applied component into a post-graduate statistics or operational research degree course.
Journal of the Royal Statistical Society

The book would be a popular text for courses and a well-thumbed addition to any medical statistician’s collection. It is sufficiently general to be of interest to industrial statisticians concerned with lifetime testing but the focus is clearly on survival of patients under treatment.
