"Mirowsky and Ross have done the population health community a splendid service by presenting a compelling and complex story for the relationship between social status and health and identifying many important contentious issues for future theoretical debate and empirical exploration. I highly recommend [Education, Social Status, and Health] to all health researchers interested in the social and economic determinants of health and well-being."
—Gerry Veenstra, Canadian Journal of Sociology Online
"John Mirowsky and Catherine Ross have made important contributions to this field, especially to our understanding of the relationship between educational attainment and health. . . . In this book, they summarize their prior research and venture some further personal thoughts on the connection between education and health. The result is a provocative review of the research and opinions of two leading figures in the field."
—James S. House and Brian Goesling, Contemporary Sociology
"It is a systematic and comprehensive study of empirical research from two very productive sociologists."
—William R. Avison, American Journal of Sociology
