This text is easy to read and makes good use of examples, which are clear and directed at an appropriate level for Post Graduate Public Health students. The use of applied examples and case studies from a range of contexts make this book relevant to a wide audience. Chapters cover core aspects needed for the teaching of Public Health Research methods, in particular, the focus on mixed methods, which is becoming a more prominent methodology in Public Health research.
Research Methods for Public Health is an excellent resource covering a broad range of research methodologies, as well as being a welcome source of inspiration for integrating these methods. I highly recommend this book as an introductory text for students of Public Health, as well as a companion book for any researcher working in the field.
