  1. Text Book I bought this book as a text book for a class I was taking on Principals and Practices of Health Education. This book provided all of the resources and knowledge I needed to chose health education as a career path. This book gives an excellent overview of the history of health education and provides the stories of health educators and CHES certified health educators throughout the country. I will be keeping this book as a professional reference for a while to come.

  2. Useful for bachelor’s-level public health education students. This is an excellent book if you are in a bachelor’s-level course of public health. It’s less helpful/meaningful if you are already admitted to an advanced degree program. Some of the content and most of the career profiles/interviews in the book highlight the experience of people with a bachelor’s degree.
