Four qualified contributors present a well rounded clinical analysis of the basic problems of health education and how these may eventually be resolved. Every health educator will encounter in each of the contributions numerous examples of problems with which he or she has wrestled, often despairingly. These matter of fact introspections are both refreshing and encouraging. They demonstrate that health education is not the intangible, formless problem that many are apt to consider it but a living, pulsing subject closely interwoven with all human activities. Physicians as well as lay workers in health education will obtain helpful orientation through consultation of this volume.
