Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Amy Hess-Fischl, MS, RD, LDN, BC-ADM, CDE (University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: This is a high level nutrition book that focuses on the physiological and biochemical basis for the role of nutrients in metabolism. The first edition was published in 2003.
Purpose: The purpose of the book, and The Nutrition Society Textbook Series, is to enhance the understanding of more complex nutrition information.
Audience: It is written primarily for nutrition professionals and undergraduate and graduate nutrition students. However, it may be at too high a level for first- or second-year undergraduate nutrition students since it presumes readers already have a very good understanding of the basics.
Features: This is an up-to-date compilation of the core concepts of nutrition and metabolism as well as how nutrients interact in the body during life stages and within each part of the body. Although it is not colorful or pleasing to the eye, the book is filled with the most recent research on nutrients.
Assessment: As a registered dietitian, I found the book fascinating and up to date. This is an advanced book for individuals who have already mastered the basics, so it would not be appropriate for an introductory course. In fact, it may not be useful in any courses besides advanced-level nutrition courses. The second edition certainly is warranted due to research updates over the past eight years.
