Encyclopedia of Lifestyle Medicine and Health

Two Volume Set
Edited by:
  • James M. Rippe, MD - Rippe Lifestyle Institute, Shrewsbury, MA, USA; University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester, MA, USA, Rippe Lifestyle Institute, Shrewsbury, MA, University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester, MA, USA

The Encyclopedia of Lifestyle Medicine and Health offers thorough coverage of relevant topics and issues in historical and contemporary context, with information on lifestyle habits and practices and their impact on health. These three volumes sort out the science behind nightly news reports and magazine cover stories, helping the reader to discern sound, evidence-based advice from that which is merely fad.

The volumes convey the latest research on lifestyle medicine, incorporating content from such areas as health psychology, communication, public policy and health promotion, and disease prevention, among others. Researchers are empowered to lead and promote healthier lifestyles after perusing the hundreds of signed, authoritative entries written by leading experts in their respective fields. Accompanying bibliographies and suggested readings provide guidance toward more in-depth resources. This comprehensive reference resource is written accessibly, making it useful for a broad audience, including students and academics in the fields of health, physical education, biology, medicine, nursing and allied health, physical therapy, nutrition, public health, and health communication, as well as for lay readers interested in learning how to leader a healthier lifestyle.

"Rippe has selected 300-plus essays, written by 250 contributors, on ways in which daily habits affect health and quality of life. The result is a robust, credible reference about the application of environmental, behavioral, medical, and motivational principles to the management of lifestyle-related health problems. Entries have enough detail to make them understandable, and contributors clearly followed the format of definition/history, explanation, development/details, and examples. The language is appropriately technical, but approachable by undergraduates."

This is a significant and important reference for healthcare professionals... every doctors surgery should have one of these, [and] it would also be a useful adjunct on the family bookshelf.
