"The combination of CMA software and Introduction to Meta‐Analysis text has proven extremely valuable in our work with medical faculty. The software is both easy to use and versatile in the various types of data that can be analyzed. The text covers the material from the ground up with useful information for both the newcomer and the experienced analyst."

Jason Brinkley, Ph.D. - Department of Biostatistics, East Carolina University

"We had no knowledge on meta‐analyses and were somewhat confused by the number of programs available. Most of them were not easy to use, not insightful and required a priori knowledge of metaanalyses statistics. There was one exception: Comprehensive Meta‐analysis. We downloaded the software and went through the easy‐to‐use tutorial. Within an hour we were performing our own metaanalysis! Our analysis was verified by our statistical department with excellent results, giving us further confidence to continue our analysis and resulting in an excellent paper in the top journal on pain research: Niesters et al., Do Sex Differences Exist in Opioid Analgesia? A Systematic Review and Meta‐ Analysis of Human Experimental and Clinical Studies. Pain, 2010, in press, doi:10.1016/j.pain.2010.06.012."
