Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Sandra A. Pezzoli, RN, BSN, MScN (Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing)
Description: Although the structure of this book is not unique, it does fully describe the developing person within the context of health promotion. This is the sixth edition of this book.
Purpose: The purpose is to examine the uniqueness of individuals and the factors that impact their development, such as culture and environment. The book is needed for its sociological approach as well as the emphasis on health promotion across the lifespan. The book meets the objectives.
Audience: The target audience is undergraduate nursing students and graduate nurse practitioner students. I believe that it is best suited to the undergraduate student, but parts could improve an experienced nurses' knowledge base, such as the discussion of different cultures. The authors are credible.
Features: This book is underillustrated. The references were both current and pertinent. The overall appearance of the text is very good. I especially liked the inset boxes that highlight nursing research. The emphasis on health promotion is excellent.
Assessment: This book offers a very comprehensive view of lifespan development. Its strengths are the description of common resources, the inclusion of case histories, and the use of tables from the Guide to Clinical Preventive Services. This approach will provide the beginning student with necessary assessment skills. The new edition succeeds by highlighting health promotion activities and the nurses' role in promoting health.
