Praise

Prescription for a Healthy Nation is an excellent book that successfully introduces a new approach to today’s epidemics.–Brian C. Reed, JAMA: Journal of the American Medical Association

Prescription for a Healthy Nation is the best book about public health I’ve read in years . . . Their important message: it is not enough just to take personal responsibility for our own actions-we also have to work for changes in society that make it easier for everyone to stay healthy.”–Marion Nestle, author of Food Politics: How the Food Industry Influences Nutrition and Health

“If we can create an environment that makes us sick, Farley and Cohen contend, we can create an environment more conducive to good health. It’s just more challenging to do so.”–Donna Chavez, Booklist

Prescription for a Healthy Nation is highly readable, interesting, and informative. More important, it offers the reader an approach to good health that is balanced and practical.” –Jeffrey Koplan, former director, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

“A wise new book.”–Nicholas D. Kristof, New York Times
