A brilliant update to a staple favourite on my book shelves. This text book provides information on a range of topics that are easily accessed and understood. Embedding the core functions of health promotion in to our teaching and practice helps to tackle health inequalities across the board. I use this book to aid my teaching and also when writing papers myself. Great quality and trusted information from established professionals in their field.
