The Process of Community Health Education and Promotion is designed to stimulate thought, discussion, and action. It incorporates real-world examples, practical questions, and a conversational tone to engage readers in a meaningful way. The authors' experiential learning approach is evident in the multitude of special features designed to help readers explore ideas and test recommended approaches. For example, learning objectives and review questions highlight targeted learning concepts. "For Your Information" boxes provide nutshell descriptions, how-to guidelines, checklists, and examples that complement and expand on chapter content. The "For Your Application" activities at the end of each chapter offer abundant opportunities for self-directed or instructor-guided learning experiences. Moreover, the appendixes include a community assessment project guide and a professional portfolio guide, to which many of the activities throughout the book contribute. This text successfully links the classroom to the real world with a skills-based focus that not only enhances professional preparation but also facilitates and supports continuing professional development.

"This book will be a great addition to the profession. It will fill a gap as no other book has done, in that it provides practical, hands-on applications and examples." — Mark Kittleson, Southern Illinois University
"Chapter 2 (Understanding Community Perspectives) is an important chapter and one that separates this text from others. It gives a very comprehensive overview of the concept of community, community-based organizations, subgroups, and the importance of considering parts rather than the whole." — Bonni C. Hodges, SUNY Cortland
"The writing style is very clear, straightforward, and accessible. The explanations of community, culture, and cultural competency are excellent. Doyle and Ward’s approach is unique, timely, and seriously needed." — Lyndall Ellingson, California State University, Chico
