This book should be required reading for anyone conducting or planning to conduct a meta-analysis. By highlighting some of the most common mistakes that occur in meta-analyses, readers will learn how to avoid perpetuating those mistakes and ensure their meta-analyses are conducted and interpreted appropriately. This book should also be of great interest to researchers, policymakers, and practitioners who wish to be informed consumers of meta-analyses.

This book will be tremendously useful to both first time and experienced users of meta-analysis. By alerting us to common pitfalls, it has the potential to improve the use of evidence in science and policy making.
