Clinicians need recommendations for simple books that can help them learn how to read, understand, and interpret clinically-relevant research literature in order to practice what is called Evidence Based Medicine (EBM).
This famous book comes in two versions: a a briefer one called “Essentials” and the original, more detailed one.
