Interesting, but I didn't see any new ideas in it. Except for the ones about the value of human life: it is better to save young adults because they have been making a lot of expenses and have not started to produce yet. It is not that good to save a baby because they are cheap to produce and they can be easily disposed of. And it is not that good either to save an old fella because they are not going to produce anything more and they are cheaper if they are dead. (Says the book, not me!!!)

Geoffrey Rose's ideas has been highly influential to my own approach to public health and health promotion, and I enjoyed every bit of this eloquent and powerful book. I try to refer to Rose's philosophy in all of my lectures, and even though it's not exactly new, it still manages to get people to think and see things in a new light.

Should be the vademecum of 21st C. preventive medicine, the basis for "Health in All Policy." Prof Rose was one of the pioneers of the idea of mutifactorial life style intervention in preventive cardiology (and stroke). Many clear-cut examples.
