A wonderfully rich and accessible textbook on the key aspects of health promotion. Green, Tones, Cross and Woodall should be commended for their impressive contribution to the art and science of health promotion in contemporary society.

Health Promotion is essential reading for students across a range of academic fields, including sociology, public health, and social policy, as it provides an insightful and rich source of information.

This supplements the physical healthcare book really well and broadens the students knowledge around the importance of supporting health care needs of our service users. It gives a social context to the issues involved.
