Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The fourth edition of the landmark book, Health Behavior and Health Education, offers an accessible, comprehensive, in-depth analysis of the health behavior theories and practices that are most relevant to health education. This thoroughly revised edition includes the most current information on theory, research, and practice at individual, interpersonal, and community and group levels. The volume includes substantial new content on current and emerging theories of health communication, e-health, culturally diverse communities, health promotion, the impact of stress, the importance of networks and community, social marketing, and evaluation.

Praise for the Fourth Edition of Health Behavior and Health Education

"Once again, the editors and contributors to the fourth edition of Health Behavior and Health Education provide up-to-date, comprehensive coverage of health behavior theories at the individual, interpersonal, and community levels along with meticulous attention to the application of theory for research and practice. This book is an extraordinary resource for students, researchers, practitioners, and policy markers."
—Susan J. Curry, Ph.D., dean, College of Public Health, University of Iowa

"This unique volume, with its astonishing breadth and depth, richly captures the energy and dynamism that is translating insight into intervention, planning into practice, and analysis into action. Both public health students and practitioners will find the book engaging and useful."
—Howard Koh, MD, MPH, Harvey V. Fineberg Professor of the Practice of Public Health and associate dean, Public Health Practice, Department of Health Policy and Management, Harvard School of Public Health

"The newest edition of Health Behavior and Health Education is a terrific volume linking theory to research and practice in the continuum of health behavior change. It reminds us of the need for theory to help us ask the right questions to move forward efficiently. There are few classic texts in the health behavior arena—and this is one of them."
—Michael Stefanek, Ph.D., vice president, Behavioral Research and director, Behavioral Research Center, American Cancer Society

Format: Kindle Edition
The chapters in this book are either hit or miss. The book has some excellent well-written and informative chapters that really help you to gain a better perspective of the field and issues surrounding health research. However, the 3rd chapter reads more like a draft in need of several edits. It is rife with psychometric and statistical errors. Furthermore, the author makes gross generalizations about her own research that are not valid nor based on sound research practices. I'm shocked that the book could be full of quality work by leading professionals, yet have a chapter on that is on complete opposite side of the spectrum. The only thing that kept me reading the book is because it is required for a class I am taking. I would fully recommend removing ch.3 for the next edition, if the publishers asked my opinion.

For anyone interested in theories of health behavior, this is the place to start. Some of the most commonly used theories are explained here in detail, and there is even an explanation for why the theories that are in there are included. However, sometimes while reading about the theories you wonder why there are so many words, when many fewer would do. Sometimes you might read a paragraph and think that you would have absorbed the information much better if, instead of that paragraph, you had read two sentences and a diagram.
Nonetheless, this is a great book to introduce you to common theories, and a great reference for a junior researcher working on intervention design or literature review.

The book is very dense and could put you to sleep (in terms of reading). However, this book has some great concepts and theories to know if you are entering the field of Health Education.
