Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: John S. Lyons, PhD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This book provides an update on the state-of-the-art in field measurement of health-related behaviors, an area the authors' aptly title Ambulatory Assessment. The book consists of 24 chapters divided into four sections: an introduction consisting of 2 chapters, 13 chapters on new methodologies, 3 chapters on monitoring in the workplace, and 6 chapters on monitoring patients.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide scholars in the field and students with an updated compendium of new approaches to measuring health-related behavior in diverse field settings. The authors meet this objective fully by providing a broad set of well-described examples of new and existing methodologies and technologies.
Audience: The primary audience for this book will be individuals interested in pursuing research in ambulatory settings. Also, graduate students and methodologists in other applied areas might benefit from this text.
Features: The print quality of this text is high, and there are many useful graphs, figures, and tables. The index is helpful, although somewhat brief.
Assessment: This well-written book provides a unique contribution to a growing field of research. The methodological focus of the book makes it a helpful addition to the libraries of scholars in the area and students considering research careers in health-related behavioral research.
