Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Robert Kushner, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This newly revised edition serves as an excellent introductory text on nutrition, body composition, weight control, and exercise physiology. The book is divided into three general sections, each containing basic and applied concepts.
Purpose: The book is intended to bridge the gap between basic nutrition topics, such as biochemistry, metabolism, physiology, and clinical nutrition, with those related to exercise and physical fitness. The authors are successful in providing a useful and contemporary perspective on total health and healthy lifestyles.
Audience: The text is appropriate for advanced high school classes and introductory level courses in college or other health science fields, such as physical therapy, nursing, and physical education.
Features: The colorful illustrations, tables, and figures significantly aid in the enjoyment, interest, and comprehension of each chapter. Appendixes provide practical information on energy expenditure and nutritive values of common foods.
Assessment: This is an excellent introductory text on the science of nutrition and exercise. The information is directly relevant to healthy living. A Student Study Guide and Workbook is available that follows the text. Students are asked to define key words and concepts, answer study questions, and take a practice quiz. The guide should be useful for students in extracting the salient concepts from each chapter.
