This 4th edition of Green and Tones' Health Promotion provides a comprehensive and thorough update on health promotion planning and strategies. Especially fruitful for both researchers and practitioners is the ethical perspective which now runs throughout the book. The chapter on the developments in evidence-based health promotion is both informative and timely, whilst new perspectives on the role of health education in health promotion suggest mitigating solutions to complex problems.
