-- Richard Sewell, MPH (University of Illinois at Chicago School of Public Health) Doody's Review - previous edition

"Public health is a diverse field, and the pathways to managing public health departments are varied. Gifted physicians, dedicated epidemiologists, and skilled managers can find themselves tapped to lead large, complex departments. No one person can have all the skills necessary to meet the challenges that confront our local health departments. This book would serve as a practical reference for any manager who wishes to become more knowledgeable and productive."

-- Journal of the American Medical Association, Jan. 2, 2008 (JAMA. 2008;299(1):100-101.)
