    Green and Krueter are the authorities

    This book is a classic in the health promotion field. The Precede-Proceed model has been around for a while and has evolved over time. The book has good overview of the model and breaks it down in subsequent chapters. There is a good set of chapters at the end on the practical use of Precede-Proceed. I used this as part of the public health PhD qualifying exams study. There are criticisms of this model, however, but obviously you'll have to look elsewhere to find them. You should try and study other planning models like Intervention Mapping and MATCH.
