From the Publisher:

The author discusses a variety of theories on health promotion. He considers the complex realities of today's health care systems to assist practitioners and policymakers in understanding the issues involved, enabling them to design programs that are realistic and workable. Explains how to use logic and reasoning to bridge the gap between grandiose rhetoric and the implementation of useful strategies which can be applied in daily practice. Features ten carefully presented exercises.

About the Author:

DAVID SEEDHOUSE was born in Nottingham, England. He was educated at Carre's Grammar School, Sleaford (1967-74) and 'The Vic', Sleaford (1971-last orders). He continued this research programme at Manchester University (1977-84) and 'The Grafton', Rusholme (1977-?) where he achieved degrees in philosophy, and of memory loss.
Though captivated by good philosophical analysis and the prospect of uninterrupted lunch-time refreshment, David decided against a conventional academic career. He found most philosophy socially irrelevant (not least to fellow Graftonites) and determined to apply his philosophical skills to actual problems - not hypothetical ones.
To this end David accepted posts in health studies, nursing and medical departments. His experiences in these aggressively non-philosophical settings persuaded him to write practical philosophy books for health professionals. The real world continues to drive this writing, even after nine books for Wiley in twelve years.
David moved to Auckland in 1992 and is now a citizen of both Britain and New Zealand. He lives happily alongside the Tamaki estuary, with this wife Hilary and daughter Charlotte, and for some reason enjoys a consistently warm welcome from Ed, the local bottle-shop owner.
