From the reviews:

"The book’s 4 editors are all well qualified to bring the reader up to date. … A major section of this book is devoted to effective and promising interventions. … For the researcher focused in a particular area… the book will provide a helpful perspective."

(Mark D. Widome, MD, MPH, The New England Journal of Medicine, Vol. 298 (5), 2007)

"This review and the Handbook are for those who care, both for themselves and for other people. … the Handbook of Injury and Violence Prevention is a valuable contribution to the literature on public health and prevention, not only in North American but in Europe as well … . The volume displays some of the clear successes we have experienced in applying the public health notion of prevention while charting a course forward in terms of additional work that can reduce human suffering." (James Campbell Quick, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 53 (2), 2007)

"This book is the work of the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, United States of America (USA). It brings together 74 authors writing on the widest range of injury prevention topics. … the breadth of coverage, the degree of detail and the quality of the scholarship make it useful in understanding specific injury and violence issues and in crafting and implementing interventions. … a very welcome addition to the literature." (Ian Scott, Bulletin World Health Organization, Vol. 87, 2009)
