CHOICE Review

The Neuman systems model is a holistic, client-centered approach to nursing that focuses on the client's reaction to stress. Reed is well qualified by her past experience in working with Neuman and her nursing theory. The book's format is logical--moving from a discussion of the origins to the assumptions and concepts of the theory. The reader is assisted in applying the theory through the use of a case example. Reed then discusses how the theory has been applied in education, practice, and research. A list of figures assists in finding information easily, and the glossary tells the reader how the terms are used. The extensive bibliography aids those interested in doing further reading about the research and application of the theory. Although the foreword states that the book is designed for undergraduate nursing students, most students, as with any theory, would need assistance in its application. Thus, this book will be most useful to nursing graduate students, faculty, and professionals. M. Flickinger; Clark State Community College
