Public Health 101: Healthy People-Healthy Populations provides a wider perspective to public health and disease than many titles offer, surveying a range of intervention options for public health, offering case studies and examples for healthcare system management, and providing a curriculum framework for college-level undergrads in public health education. The result is a powerful package of resources key to any college-level collection offering public health programs.

The book gets 4 stars because, while I found it to be an easy, informative, and enjoyable read, it did not give too much attention to health systems outside the U.S. outside from one chapter. However, if you are looking for a great book about public health is the United States, this would be a 5 star review.

I purchased this book for a class I am currently taking. I am about to start the 4th chapter but so far it has been easy to read. I like that the chapters are not super long and is actually easy to read. Not long and drawn out.

This book is so easy to sit back and read! The chapters are not very long and they cut right to the point. This is a great book for anyone looking to go into public health or the medical field.

This was a great book. I bought it for a class I was enrolled in. HCS/457 University of Phoenix 2013 / and found myself wanting to read even more. The book was laid out in a format that made it fun to read. It offered real life examples and references to past cases of public health events. Whether for class or recreation, this was a good book.

I got this book for a helth class. It is a good book for school and I do get good use out of it. Because it is for school I do not find it interesting.
