The archetype for all Community Health Worker textbooks. In its second edition, it is the most relevant textbook available for CHW''s. I use in my college and university level courses on community health, Community Health Worker (CHW) and Community Paramedics. Mr. Berthold and his faculty are insightful and practical. Easy to understand language and definitions make it a good book for all levels, including entry and high school reading. Yet, not so basic that the most educated can''t find interest in it. We plan to use for years to come.
