Format: Paperback
This was a purchase that I made in order to participate in a master's level epidemiology course. It was perfectly complex for those interested in, but not yet involved in the health fields. Not too complicated and jargon filled, not too simplified. It provided a well rounded background for the subject matter with many background/historical reports for further elucidation of this field. It also included a wide variety of graphs, lists, information sources, etc. that are of use to those in the public heath field.

The text contains a very hearty background of epidemiology and the purpose of utilizing the subject in the real world. It provides plenty of actual examples of happenings and how epidemiologists were able to apply the concepts and perform duties in dire circumstances. The text is easy to follow and keeps the reader engaged. This should be recommended to any person who desires not just the basic foundation of epidemiology, but also a refresher course in knowledge of what epidemiologists do on a day-to-day basis. Great read!

This text is useful for patient education and primary healthcare practitioners. I received the book before the expected date. Book arrived clean and pages are intact. It is a "used book" but it looks like new!Thank you! This book is very informative about diseases and there are health promotion topics to educate the community about how they can manage their health better with more awareness of making plans to resolve issues related to disease prevention and health promotion within their community.

I bought this book for my Epidemiology class while studying for my Masters in Public Health. It was a required course and so was the book a necessity. I love it and therefore bought a copy for a friend. The book was comprehensible. The probing questions at the end of each chapter challenged your understand of what you had read previously. At the end of reading book you must attain a better grasp of everything that Epidemiology entail.

I purchased this book for class and must admit that it is an easy read for anyone. I detest reading and it was very enjoyable for me. The concepts are easy to understand and he breaks it down in simple terms to drive the idea home. Highly recommended.
