This is an excellent book that includes some highly motivating chapters including assessing health and its determinants. This book will be invaluable to my teaching of 2nd year students on the Health Promotion course at the University as it includes many models and concepts new and old and contains valuable resources for lecturers to use within class sessions.

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.
