Review by Michel O'Neill, University of Laval: "
In my introductory courses in Health Promotion, I always say: 'If you have to buy just one book on health promotion in your life, it should be Green and Kreuter's.' I really think that for its thoroughness, its orientation on action based on very robust scientific theories and empirical findings, its constant evolution from a rather narrowly focused book on individual behaviour in its first edition (1980) to the third 1999 edition subtitled An Educational and  Ecological  Approach, as well as for the PRECEDE-PROCEED model it proposes, Health Promotion Planning (1999) is probably the single most useful book in the field."  (http://www.rhpeo.org/reviews/2001/2/index.htm)
