The widely read 'A glass half-full' written by Jane Foot with Trevor Hopkins makes the case for using an asset based approach in work to improve health and well-being and challenge health inequalities. 'What makes us healthy', a new publication written by Jane Foot, has the latest thinking on the evidence, action and evaluation of the assets approach. Both publications contain a number of case-studies from across the country.

Many of the publications featured here are recommended by Asset Based Consulting as essential reading if you are interested in taking an asset based approach. Some have been influenced by the ideas in 'A glass half-full' or reference it in their bibliography. Others have influenced our thinking. They all have one thing in common; they all argue that we need to take a radically different approach if we are to improve health and well-being and address the health inequalities in and between many of our communities.
