In the Twelfth Edition, access to learning about personal health has been enhanced through the book’s eye-popping design, imaginative art, unique Focus On mini-chapters, and robust media.
The Twelfth Edition offers superior access to teaching personal health with the inclusion of Focus On mini-chapters and their accompanying supplements, new assignable elements on MyHealthLab® and the Companion Website, and the comprehensive Teaching Tool Box.
With the goal of guiding students to improve their own health, the Twelfth Edition provides greater access to achievingoptimal health through new features and supplemental materials. Behavior change coverage has been expanded in this edition with a completely re-written introductory chapter focusing on the steps needed to change one’s behavior, individually designed self-assessments, an enhanced Live It section on MyHealthLab and the Companion Website, and a new On the Go section of MyHealthLab and the Companion Website.
