"If we are to remove barriers to better health gain, not just health care, we need more of our public health leaders in the US and in the other 199 countries of the world to read this text. As the US struggles to balance its resource investments for health, we need leaders that understand and practice the insights captured in this valuable book. Knowledge, practices, power and smart strategy can be mined from the pages. You should begin that mining process now."
