Though the book is written primarily for undergraduates, it would also be useful for postgraduate students of community medicine. The book “Community Medicine with Recent Advances” is student-friendly because it is written in an understandable way, covering the entire syllabus prescribed by the Medical Council of India (MCI), including the recent advances. The matter is presented in such a way as to avoid confusion and to make the reading of the book a pleasurable experience. Topics like biostatistics would encourage the students to take up the research activities. The lucid language of the book would facilitate quick revision. The book “Community Medicine with Recent Advances” is teacher-friendly because they may appreciate the presentation of the subject matter exhaustively and clearly, having tentacles attached to various other branches of medicine such as obstetrics, pediatrics, dermatology, psychiatry and general medicine, in order to conform to the changing profile of community medicine. The book is examiner-friendly because it covers the vast areas of the subject to enable asking questions vertically, horizontally and tangentially. The book is doctor-friendly because it would help the general practitioners and the rural medical officers in providing not only curative services but also preventive and promotive services to the community at large, motivating them to a healthier and happier life.
