This book is a required reading for my undergraduate community nursing class. The text is very relevant to what is being taught. I particularly found the chapter introductions helpful and the tables and charts very helpful. I liked the fact that if I didn't have time to read every word of a chapter I could still look at the chapter review and get an idea about what important facts are in each chapter.
