PERSONAL HEALTH: PERSPECTIVES AND LIFESTYLES emphasizes the individual's personal responsibility for wellness by presenting general (core) and current health information to guide decision making.

Filled with practical advice, stimulating discussion questions and self-assessment exercises, this text take an applied approach and empowers students to take control of their own health. Concentrated emphasis on health issues as they relate to various cultural differences make this text one of the most up-to date resources for health-related culture, gender, ethnic, and age issues.

"Contact Numbers and Email addresses are very effective and one of the unique pedagogical features of the book. Diversity coverage is covered appropriately, in both discussions and the pictorial and other presentations. A good mix is provided."
"My overall opinion of PERSONAL HEALTH LIFESTYLES AND PERSPECTIVES is that it is a well put-together, contemporary text that encompasses most of the current health issues that concern (or should concern) college students today. I like the use of color and graphics that break up text and add clarity to more important points, terms or sub-topics. The 'Tips for Action' are great 'how to' boxes that can also be used as points for discussion during class sessions."
"It seems fairly comprehensive and covers most of the primary topics I cover in my introductory course on health promotion. 'Tips for Action' can be very helpful and should be highlighted more. 'Viewpoints' really add a dimension to the static dialogue. I think the information is very appropriate for my students and it feels and reads as current."
"Overall, I found many of the features in PERSONAL HEALTH LIFESTYLES AND PERSPECTIVES to be of excellent quality. 'Sidebars' add interest and variety to the chapter, complement the information presented in the text. 'Self Assessments' - Compared to other texts, I like how they are bound in the text (as opposed to being a separate packet) and with each chapter (as opposed to being all in the back of the book). I also like the selection of assessments."
