Format: Paperback
This book was required for a class I took. I found the book long-winded. What was said in 20 pages could have been said in 5.

Also, the authors state their own personal opinion as fact in multiple places. This was distracting.

If you are required to buy the book, then you probably aren't reading reviews because a bad review won't change whether or not you buy the book. If you are considering this book simply as a reference quick to community nursing, I would recommend looking elsewhere.

I had to purchase this book for class. I did not like this book. I feel there is good information, but the book did not "flow" well. The book jumped from one section to another.

This book is a GREAT public health nursing resource, it lays down a strong foundation for community nursing. I get the most use out of the clinical application sections, they provide modern situations and are informative. You can access the supplemental student resources online through Evolve. Just follow the textbook's instructions. The resources are helpful for added understanding. I purchased it through Amazon as I do most of my textbooks. The delivery was right on schedule as usual.

I have had a few nursing textbooks that put me to sleep. This one was the opposite. While no textbook is a "page-turner", this one was engaging from the beginning. It details where we've been, where we are, and where we are going in the field of community nursing. Each chapter covers its topic thoroughly. Although I doubt I will ever open some of my textbooks again, I plan on keeping this one for reference.

Good book...boring. Probably not the fault of the author. It's just a little dry. I didn't actually end up using it much because the information is so basic that I could just go without even reading it.

I am a RN working on my BSN. This book was a part of the curriculum for my community nursing class. I thought it was written well but it did not appeal to my personal learning style. I am a much more to the point learner, and I agree with other reviewers that this book offers too much conjecture without citation.

I compared my book to my classmates book who also bought it used (not from the same seller). My book looked like a peasant compared to a king. The book was taped up, poor quality, bent front cover, just overall looked horrible. Definitely NOT "good" condition.

This book is jammed pack with information. Boxes inserted on every page, but the information is thorough. If you try to expand on a subject or process, this book lacks that information. Overall, book just touches basic information about community nursing.
