Not just a book of facts, but a guide to practical methods, the Oxford Handbook of Public Health Practice will help the reader with the following: Understand the technical approaches to population health problems, teach public health concepts and methods to others, break a public health problem down into separate tasks, and identify how to tackle them and finally to make an informed, authoritative, and confident public pronouncement.

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)
