This book is poorly written and poorly organized. I am in my last semester of nursing school and I am so disappointed in this book. Perhaps it is written on a graduate level and is not suited to undergraduate study? I should be studying for a community test right now, but have such a hard time making myself open this book. I can spend hours reading a chapter and not have learned anything. Or worse -- learned something wrong.

I like to read, and I depend on reading chapters in order to pass exams. But this book does not help me grasp any of the concepts, much less be able to apply them on exams.

If you're reading this, I know you probably HAVE to buy this book and I am sorry about that. I just wish instructors would think twice before choosing this as a textbook for their courses. Reading it has been frustrating, to say the least. If I wasn't so far into the semester I would get a more readable book to help me learn this subject.

Rented this book for our daughter's class in her Bachelors of Science in Nursing. She enjoyed to book, it was well worth the rental price and the ease of returning the book was great. I love the fact that Amazon reminds you several times to get the book back to avoid paying for it. A wonderful service for college classes.

I am familiar with this new public health text. As a community/public health educator of over 25 years I find this textbook readable for undergraduates and catalyzing specifically because cases are integrated in the text. This allows the reader and learner to apply the knowledge shared. This is accomplished across a reasonable amount of chapters (24) as opposed to 40 or more in other textbooks. For a student the amount of money paid for a book should be reflective of the degree of use. A semester is self-limiting in length and in the case of this book the pertinent areas of community and public health are represented realistically in the time frame.
The scholarly nature of the book is excellent with specific referencing to evidence-based practice from refereed community, public health, and research literature throughout. Authors are of national and international reputation in each chapter. The illustrations are colorful and attractive and in each chapter there is a respectful presentation of information to help all kinds of learners.

This book is probably one of the best that I have encountered in my nursing education. It won the Book of the Year Award from the AJN in 2011, and I can definitely see why. It's clear, concise, and interesting. I highly recommend this book to anyone in community health/public health nursing.

I ordered this book NEW and that is not how I received it!! Just because there is no writing in the book doesn't make it new. I should receive the book in the quality I paid for. This isn't the first textbook I ordered from Amazon that I received "NEW." I think this will be my last textbook order from Amazon.

This book is VERY vague! I hate when the chapter is about something really important and they use NO examples.

I feel that it is poorly written. They actually cite Wikipedia as a source.As a textbook that we use in a school who reprimands the citation of wikipedia in papers , this feels wrong.

There are no online resources with this book. Our program uses many Evolve books and the resources really help when needing extra information on a topic. This book, however, does NOT come with any.

Overall, I say keep looking for a better one.

This book is good. I think depending on your teacher, it might not be needed. If you are interesting in community nursing this book explains it well.
