Public Health Textbook,

This review is from: Introduction To Public Health (Paperback)
This is a wonderful textbook for an introductory course in public health, because it does a great job of utilizing past public health events in making a point. I like the ways in which epidemiology and the biomedical section of public health was explained, in a way which does not rely on statistics and not an overdose of epidemiological principles and what not. I love this textbook because it is arranged in a way with summary summarizing the past chapter pretty closely to the sections detailed more in depth from the chapter. This a great textbook for students embarking on a public health course, this is the best introduction, hopefully one to spur or ignite passion in the field. I also like the fact that this textbook is current, in other fields older textbooks are used with less accurate data and or statistics, however in the field of public health this is not the case since the author used several recent as well as past public health events and associated information. The language is very easy to understand, sometimes the language used is not such making the text harder to read, such is not the case with this textbook. This textbook could have been better if there were fill in the blanks after each chapter to reiterate that the reader has fully grasped the concept or concepts in detail. As I have mentioned this is a great introductory text and is worth your while.
