'In nursing, there is a notable lack of theoretical clarity on the current nature and scope of health promotion and its lack of frameworks to guide practice and policy. The strength of this text is in systematically addressing these fundamental issues and bringing to life tangible solutions to them. This book goes a long way to fill the current dearth of nursing-related books and other literature that report and support health promotion in the context of "traditional" health education. For this reason, and many others, this book comes highly commended as a valuable resource for promoting and guiding "real" health promotion for nurses and nursing.' - Dean Whitehead, Massey University, New Zealand
'Stewart Piper's careful trawl through the evidence for health promotion in nursing practice is serious and stimulating. He clearly demonstrates that if the profession is properly concerned about developing its capacity for promoting health, it needs to think long and hard about why and how it should do this.' - Peter Duncan, King's College London, UK
