Review quote

"The content is very well written and organized including a multitude of helpful summary tables, charts and illustrations. Nearly all of the information relevant to the field of workplace health promotion is synthesized in this "planning and operations" manual. Each chapter concludes with corresponding references for further information.



This book should be in the library of any current and prospective professional in work site or community health. Students and veterans in the field (even with decades of experience) stand to be served well by using this collective reference."
