I took Intro to Public Health last semester and I seriously LOVED this book. It is very rare for a college student to say that they actually enjoy reading their textbook but I sure did with this book as I actually read every chapter. This book covered topics from every major field of public health (health policy, environment, epidemiology, biostatistics, health behavior, maternal and child health, and so on). The only potential problem is that this book is primarily written from a United States perspective, with global health problems scattered throughout the book. She writes in a very raw manner, making her case for public health, and letting us know how relevant it is in our world since public health literally surrounds us everywhere. Sometimes, she is even sarcastic in her speech as she attacks conservative politics and ideas on a regular basis. She makes sure to point out the ironies of the Republican party and how they have been detrimental to the progress of public health. In almost every chapter, she attacks the Bush administration which I personally do not have a problem with. If you are a Republican or very conservative, you will probably very easily get offended.

I purchased this book for a class and I must say that it's been a pretty good read for a textbook!! I will definately be referring back to it frequently. I especially like the fact that the kindle version gives you APA citation information if you copy and paste anything from the text. That was VERY helpful for writing research papers.

Boring book full of common sense. I needed it for my Public Health class, but I probably would have done just fine without it. The content was relatively easy.

I took my first Public Health course this semester and this book was the assigned textbook. I am very happy with the content of the book - all of the tests have been based on the information from the book and I have earned A's on all of the tests. This book is an EXCELLENT supplemental reading for those interested in the Public Health Feild. It paints an encouraging, understanding, and realistic view of how society and the world interact with eachother as it pertains to Public Health. I am very pleased with this text and would recommend it to anyone who would like to know a little bit more about the field.

I particularly enjoyed the chapter on health care reform. This book provides useful information on chronic, and infectious disease and how they tie in with public health.

This is a very informative book with in depth chapters regarding a variety of public health issues and disease prevention. My only critique about the book is that it would be easier to follow in an academic setting if the chapters were set up in more of a bullet pointed style, instead of essay format. Some of the material gets lost in the shear size of each paragraph, which requires quite a bit of note taking and highlighting. The material itself is very informative and relative to public health today.

For anyone working in clinical health, public health, or studying in those fields this book is a staple. Buy it and keep it. It is referenced so often in clinical and public health and you will find that the information has not changed over the years.
