Abstract: This second edition of 'Health and Physical Education: Preparing educators for the future' retains all of its excellent features from the first edition and in many places strengthens these features. Callcott, Miller and Wilson-Gahan provide updated examples of the uses of ICT in health and physical education, further strengthening the alignment of these fields. The developmental perspective that underpins the book is highlighted by increasing the focus on the crucially important topic of early childhood pedagogy and curriculum. They strengthen an already outstanding feature of the book, of speaking directly to the student-teacher reader, by updating the literature on the use of vignettes and teacher biography in teacher education. The whole area of health education is substantially further developed with the inclusion of the concept of salutogenesis and of the emerging strengths-based approach to health education. And the authors' concerns for social justice are amplified by the greater use of examples of cultural diversity among students. Illustrating the currency of the authors' knowledge of recent developments in the school curriculum since publication of the first edition in 2012, there is an overview of the status of work on the Australian Curriculum and of the research literature on models-based practice in health and physical education.
