Easy Reading, Deep Insights

This book, especially the first few chapters, are the most accessible words I've ever read on best practices in community organizing. Useful not just for health workers, I'd say it's a must read for community organizers, activists, PeaceCorps volunteers, etc. These guys have great insights on how a community can go about empowering itself.

You must read this book if you work in public health.

Werner and Bower have catalogued hundreds, if not thousands, of techniques, devices, and ideas for use by health workers. It is a fantastic reference for people who are involved in public health.While the presented settings are primarily rural or unindustrialized areas, the material is very adaptable to other situations or conditions. The authors provide comprehensive, detailed and realistic examples of methods that work to communicate health messages and create better living conditions.It can be pithy. Don't expect to sit down and read it from cover to cover. I don't think the authors intended it to be used that way. Give yourself time to digest the information and enjoy the reading!

Only for those who ponder our reality...

This is an incredible book which truly emphasizes the reality of the world we live in. The title of the book leaves so much out of the true content within it. David Werner has managed to share his experiences in a very effective manner by providing examples, quotations and anecdotes. I recommend this book for anyone, not just healthcare workers! The premise of the book is to show the value of empowering a group to take charge of their well being. I enjoyed the book and I highly recommend it.
