4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"This is a very useful guide for busy practitioners who want a concise, accessible resource of theories for health promotion. Each theory is followed by a commentary discussing its strengths, weaknesses, and practical use. Each chapter ends with a bibliography of further readings. Tables and figures throughout further enhance understanding. This edition includes revisions and updates to all sections as well as new sections on community organization and community building, evidence-based policy making, and health impact assessment."--Doody's Review Service
