This book is a great text requirement for an MPH program. The only drawback I can think of, is that it is so darn heavy! An e-book or kindle version may not be as user friendly as one may think. Overall, good buy.

This was an incredibly good text book and I thoroughly enjoyed reading every bit of it. It is a compilation of topics as an overview of public health in American. The editors did a great job of choosing relevant topics that gave a student a good picture of Public Health and what makes up Public Heath. I highly recommend this book.

This book is very wordy, with little content. So was the class. Really? We could have had a two day seminar with a quiz at the end and learned the same amount. I'm a nurse, if this is all Public Health is, well, not much to it. Somebody needs to write a book "Public Health Made Easy." Don't spend a ton of time studying for this class. Skim this massive headache, go by your notes and forget it.

This text is a good overview of public health issues and historical information. An easy book for use by non-public health majors. The book seems to be designed more for someone who might be taking only 1-2 semesters of PH rather than someone who is concentrating in this subject. There is not any significant statistics work, just a broad overview of the discipline.
