Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Carol Boswell, Ed.D.(Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center)
Description: This book provides an in-depth look at the areas of food, nutrition, and diet therapy. It addresses these issues over the lifespan and related to disease processes and other pertinent aspects. The prior edition was published in 2000.
Purpose: According to the preface, this book endeavors to provide theoretical knowledge and clinical information for use by all disciplines of healthcare. With the changes related to diet therapy, an update of the book seems appropriate. The materials do address the current knowledge available for use in relation to nutrition and dietary care.
Audience: This book is intended for use by nursing, dietetic, and allied health students. It is also envisioned as an ancillary text for other health related disciplines. The authors appear to be credible authorities in the field. They have also used peers to review the content to ensure appropriateness of the material.
Features: The book is organized into five parts, which address basic information, nutrition across the life cycle, nutritional care, nutrition for health and fitness, and medical nutrition therapy. The authors have incorporated multiple tables, figures, and graphics. The color, appendixes, and glossary are helpful due to the complexity of the material. Each chapter provides relevant Web sites. The chapters provide clinical insights and use boxes to provide a focus on a specific aspect appropriate for that chapter.
Assessment: This provides an organized compilation of important information about nutrition, diet, and food. It is well developed and pleasing to the eye. The information reflects the latest information thus justifying the replacement of previous editions.
