"This book combines the most basic lessons of epidemiology with a real-world international health compelling story. It should be required reading for every public health student."

"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) would find this book extremely useful in the training of its EIS officers. There are few, if any, similar publications written by a person with the experience and accomplishments of Dr. Sommer. The book demonstrates significant field epidemiology results achieved through a practical, but rigorous, hands-on approach vividly illustrated with personal experiences."

"Sommer is deftly able to explore his field's big ideas by directly following ordinary human stories, which not only makes the lessons easy to understand but foregrounds the reasons why to do it in the first place."

"Sommer's new memoir is also a gift to students—'Inspiration for Tomorrow's Leaders' is the subtitle—full of stories from a career spent in some of the poorest corners of the world, amid political upheaval and natural disasters."

"Alfred Sommer has now done exactly what we desire and written 10 Lessons in Public Health: Inspiration for Tomorrow’s Leaders. Sommer combines the wisdom of going to where the problems are... with a discussion of the limitation of a job description... These aren’t just lessons for public health. These are lessons for life."
