Focus on Health continues to take an exciting and practical approach to the teaching of personal health and its traditional content areas. In this edition the authors take a new look at impact the media, from web to television to print, has on health decisions. An important feature of the text is its two themes (the six dimensions of health and the five developmental tasks) which help students apply the text’s content to their own lives by improving their decision-making skills. These two themes continue in the fifth edition.
