Editorial Reviews

Review

"is a book that belongs on the desktop of every medial educator..." (The Journal of Continuing Education in the Health Professions, April 2003)

Review

Praise for Health Behavior and Health Education: Theory, Research, and Practice

"This book reflects with crystal clarity for students and practitioners the advances in theories and their application in health promotion and education since the previous edition, but also challenges the theorists and researchers to address the gaps that need to be filled before the next edition."
— Lawrence W. Green, visiting professor, Department of Behavioral Sciences and Health Education, Rollins School of Public Health, Emory University

"The third edition of Health Behavior and Health Education will be indispensable for researchers, practitioners, and policymakers working to translate research into practice. This volume charts new territory-from research design to application-and gives the field the lift and vision we've needed."
— C. Tracy Orleans, senior scientist, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation

"Regardless of the practice site for health educators, and the nature of the practical problems they address in their daily work, the theoretically-driven orientation of this book is a major resource. After all, there is nothing more practical than a good theory-and this text is full of them!"
— Nancy Fugate Woods, dean, School of Nursing, University of Washington

4.0 out of 5 stars A classic in the field of health education theory July 5, 2005
Format:Hardcover
This revised edition of the classic work by Glanz et al. demonstrates the benefits of poignant insight into the classic psychosocial and behavioral theories and how they relate to the field of public health and health education. Glanz leads the reader through most all of the major theories that apply to designing a public health intervention. In many of the chapters dedicated to individual theories, she includes extensive case studies of the practical implications of the theoretical work described within the main body of each chapter. Along with the other authors of this extensive compilation of classic health behavior and health education literature, Glanz develops within the reader a cohesive and fundamental understanding of theoretical approaches in order to make a successful, calculated, relevant, and effective public health education intervention.

Simply glancing through the pages contained within Glanz's masterwork tells the reader of the depth and breadth of the field that she covers in compiling this work. The theories are diverse and the approaches taken by each author equally diverse. Glanz nevertheless manages to accomplish the improbable and weave together an outstanding work encompassing all of these models and theories. For the public health professional, student, physician, or educator, Glanz's classic text on health behavior is essential for a simple, yet detailed understanding of all aspects of health behavior.

4.0 out of 5 stars Health Behavior and Health Education October 3, 2005
Format:Hardcover
This book is a must have for anyone in the health education field. It presents all major health behavior theories in a clear and understandable manner, applies theories to case studies at the end of each chapter, and offers a table summary of each theory's core constructs. The book is well written and with this third edition comes more updated research information.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for a novice September 19, 2005
Format:Hardcover
Unarguably, Glanz et al know their theories. That, along with how comprehensive this book is, is as much of a positive review as I can give. My criticism of this book is not the expertise of Glanz et al. (They are quite obviously experienced intellectuals and are to be commended for their efforts.) My concern is:

HEHB is inappropriately used as a textbook. HEHB was a professor's textbook choice for a course I am taking. As theories of health behavior are relatively new to me, I found this book to be at a level much too advanced for those just learning of health theories. Glanz compounds the problem by introducing new material-theories--with word choices that are not conducive to learning. Have a dictionary close by if you're a newcomer to health behavior theory; Glanz et al do not make the learning process easy in their attempt to convey the message. The majority of my classmates, some participating as part of a Master's program, are having great difficulty with this text. We often comment on the numerous times we re-read the material in order to grasp the context.

HEHB does not serve well as a general textbook; rather, it is a reference resource for individuals seeking advanced knowledge and case citations.

Known at our school as the "purple book," Glanz/Rimer 3e remains the go-to introduction to theories and models in health behavior and health education. Many of the entries are by leading practitioners, researchers, and theorists in the field. Unless you have read through and studied this book, you simply are not educated in this topic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Health Behavior & Health Education, a good buy September 30, 2007
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Good book for a class on Health Behavior and Health Education Theories. Good for graduate level work. Theories broken into chapters. Each chapter has the theory history, significant time line for the theory, chart and descriptions of the constructs, and examples where research has used the theory effectively. Examples in book make use of the theory more understandable.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a very appealing text April 19, 2006
By Tejas
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Chapters are disjoint at times, with no reference to similar concepts between them. Almost as if they were all written separately without any editing to tie them all together.

Information is presented in something less than an interesting manner - it's pretty dry!
