Oxford - with Muir Gray as its guiding light, is once again a metaphorical meeting place for ideas, inspiration and great teaching. Just as Laurent Blanc kissed the bald pate of Fabien Barthez before each game in France's glorious World Cup winning run, kiss the cover of the Oxford Handbook of Public Health Practice before you open it. You will have found a true soul mate. From the foreword by Liam Donaldson, Chief Medical Officer The editors of the Oxford Handbook of Public Health Practice have achieved their aim. It is excellent value for money and is essential reading for new trainees and experienced practitioners of Public Health Medicine alike. Public Health This pocket-sized book is packed full of practical information about how to make things happen in public health. In 66 admirably concise chapters it covers a vast amount of territory from appraising research evidence to improving personal effectiveness. Laurence Gruer, Director for Postgraduate and Continuing Education in Public Health Medicine, Public Health Institute of Scotland The 'must have' public health book of the year, if not the decade... a superb book. Public Health The book is so well compiled and edited, it is of immense value and help to anyone involved in public health... training schemes should provide a personal copy to all trainees all over the country... certainly a worthwhile investment. Dr P Badrinath, St Clements Hospital, Ipswich One of the most helpful books I have found within this field... a fantastic study aid for exams. Reviewer on Amazon.co.uk
