Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Overall, I feel that Hales', AN INVITATION TO HEALTH is a good, informative textbook. The text is well organized and detailed. I like the fact that the information is presented with the idea that an individual should assume personal responsibility for their own health. Also, the author tries to include information in each chapter that relates specifically to college students. This is helpful in capturing students' attentions and helping them to see the relevance of the information."

"My overall opinion of AN INVITATION TO HEALTH is that it is a well thought out text that covers the areas necessary for an introductory health course. I like the overall emphasis on wellness and holistic health issues."

"The three new features - The X and Y files, FAQs and Consumer Health Watch - are excellent additions for enhancing an individual's health awareness.(...) The reader can easily find a particular "feature" of interest for each of the chapters. The power point slides and CNN video for each chapter are especially valuable support materials."

From The Critics
Emphasizing practical strategies for making healthy lifestyle changes, this introductory text, now enoying its tenth incarnation, presents research on the prevention of illness and offers a holistic view of mental and physical health. Chapters focus on stress, fitness, nutrition, sex, the health care system, infections diseases, heart problems, cancer, drugs, safety, death, and environmental health. Appendixes cover Internet resources, a directory of organizations, emergency information, consumer information, and calorie and fat data. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Booknews
