I was interested to read this, esp with Marmot's high profile report (Review of Health Inequalities) presented to the government earlier this month. But this book was a summary of what has already been said, over & over again, just as in the Black Report of 1980. The book is quite academic, being very well researched and referenced throughout. Data presented in tables are from 1998-2003 so not that useful, more up to date data is easily downloadable from governmental websites for free. no colour is used in the book, and there are no pictures, just black & white bar charts and the odd line diagram.
