This book was very helpful.

The main issue with this book is that there is entirely too much content covered in each chapter.

I teach several courses on global health and have found this book to be very good. It is clear, organized, and to the point. It provides students with sufficient background about the major topics of interest in global health that they are able to engage in in-depth discussions in the classroom. It's particularly good for covering some of the drier information that an instructor doesn't necessarily need to go over in the classroom, which then leaves room for case studies and a more detailed presentation of a few select topics in the classroom.

This text is very informative. There are many explains regarding health, public health, and world health. Unfortunately, the amount of information provided in the text was very overwhelming. As the previous reviewer has stated, the pages are covered with a lot of text. I would discourage professors from using this text, unless they will solely focus their lectures on this.

First of all, it's a textbook, who likes textbooks? My issue is that it does not have page numbers. Other books are a "picture" of the page, so it shows graphs and footnotes, margins, page numbers, etc- just like a real book. This one shows up like a book for pleasure reading- as in you can change the letter size. This would be fine if I didn't need graphs and charts and page numbers to cite. Other books allow for zooming in on charts, this doesn't even have the charts. This book looses it formatting. Sucks for school.

The main issue with this book is that there is entirely too much content covered in each chapter. Instead of focusing on a few high priority points, the author seems to get bogged down in a myriad of statistics and nuances that don't really add a lot of value to the chapter.

It is very difficult to get through the text and eventually one resolves to just skim the chapters to parcel out the main points instead of reading all of the fine details. For an entry level global health book, I found this to be book to be too ambitious.
