"This text informs my teaching and underpins the learning outcomes that relate to a range of 'health' modules and courses. It is a text that I shall certainly recommend to students, as it is written in a user friendly style, encourages critical thinking and focuses on developing an appreciation of knowledge that underpins practice and the application of theory to practice. I welcome the changes as a positive development and look forward to the third edition." - Pauline Lilley, Coventry University, UK "[This] text helps students to construct an accurate and unbiased view of health and social care which is helpful in facilitating critical analysis [...] provides students with a framework to be critical of the information on health that they find in other sources, predominantly more web-based information. [...]Students that do not use this text tend to present overly descriptive essays and are reliant on web based information." - Peter Stuart, University of Northampton, UK "Excellent general text on health for use by midwifery students who need to gain a broader view of health related to women, pregnancy and childbearing." - Nicola Young, UEA "This is a good background read and affords a broad interpretation of health issues. This edition engages the reader and encourages them to uncover the broader issues of health." - Faith Muir, University of Wolverhampton, UK "A very comprehensive text which will be an invaluable addition to the existing resources for my students." - Dev Jootun, University of the West of Scotland
