Reviews

An essential text for both graduate and undergraduate health psychology courses, the authors elegantly and comprehensively explore health psychology in the 21st century. The fifth edition further advances a critical perspective on health while introducing readers to emerging issues such as long-term conditions and end-of-life care. -- Christopher Godfrey
Marks and colleagues' capacity to provide a global perspective, while including elements of social justice, with a consideration of the social and political determinants of health, makes this text an invaluable companion when introducing undergraduates to the field of health psychology.
-- Nancy L. Worsham
