Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Manisha Harisingh Maskay, PhD, RD, LD (University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: This seventh edition provides abundant information on general and therapeutic nutrition in a format that enhances readability and comprehension. This edition has been expanded to include a chapter on AIDS and to provide more detailed information on enteral and parenteral nutrition. Some chapters have been rewritten to include new material and illustrations have been added. The last edition was published in 1989.
Purpose: This book seeks to provide a comprehensive approach to the study of nutrition. It includes the foundations of nutrition with fairly detailed discussions of nutrients, metabolic processes, and nutrition through the life cycle as well as psychological, social, and related aspects of diet and nutrition.
Audience: It is a useful reference for clinicians and a fairly complete text for students interested in studying normal and therapeutic nutrition.
Features: The thoughtful inclusion of pertinent topics makes this a current and relatively thorough book on the science and application of nutrition. It has important attributes that enhance usability, understanding, and learning. The detailed contents provide a quick summary of topics included in each chapter, and the index helps locate items rapidly. Glossaries within each chapter foster understanding of new terms and concepts. The use of case studies and presentation of issues also promotecomprehension and make the topic pertinent. The challenge to "probe further" encourages the reader to consider the subject in more depth. Current references at the end of each chapter provide a starting point for further research. Review questions help the student to place each major topic in context. Appendixes provide valuable information on various important issues.
Assessment: This is an excellent textbook of basic and applied nutrition with a few extremely minor deficiencies. The chapters on applied nutrition in community health are inadequate. In addition, the flow of concepts would be smoother if this topic was placed after the chapter on nutrition through the life cycle. The complexities of therapeutic nutrition are handled clearly, concisely, and completely. Overall, it is an extremely useful resource for students of nutrition and health professionals inclinical practice.
