    Comprehensive nutrition info, but binding fell apart by 2nd week

    Nutrition and You is a great book. It contains everything you need to know to learn about nutrition and starts at a very basic level. Very easy to read. At the end of each chapter is a list of the 10 most important concepts. Plenty of graphics. Pre- and post- tests for each chapter. Very accessible, well done. I bought this book brand-new because I am a nursing student and figured I would want to save it. The binding on it fell apart after two weeks. The content is fabulous, but what an incredible waste of money. I'd really like a replacement.
