Health Promotion and Education Research Methods provides a comprehensive and thorough presentation of the skills and processes needed to complete high quality research. This text differs from other research methods books, in that it provides an overview of and different approaches to research methods while introducing students to the five-chapter thesis or dissertation format. Developed specifically for health educators by two of the most well-known names in the field, the text makes extensive use of examples from health education and remains flexible enough to serve those interested in teaching research outside of a thesis or dissertation context. "Finally, a research textbook that presents information in a logical, unbiased order." -Dr. Sara Black, St. Joseph's University
