From the Publisher"Objectives are clearly defined and organized in a logical as well as practical format that should be easy for students to grasp. . . . Sidebars and text boxes are useful and easily lend themselves to discussion beyond factual material, moving towards application of major concepts."
"I think these first three chapters are better written, better organized, and set a better stage for the rest of the information presented in the book, when compared to our current text. . . . Great concepts and ideas, some great new concepts not presented in other texts, well suited for undergraduate students."
"All the chapters [I reviewed] were great. The primary strength is that it melds the current research and recommendations with practical considerations for feeding athletes. The depth and breadth seem to be appropriate and the instructor should be able to elaborate if necessary. I also liked the frankness in situations of athletes' nutritional practices."
"Excellent objectives-particularly the application to non-athletes exercising for health and/or weight loss. The emphasis on science and critical thinking is very important; as the authors state, practitioners in this field need to be able to sift through a lot of new claims and fads. To do this, they will need a solid understanding of the underlying science and practice evaluating scientific claims. . . . This textbook is an excellent guide to the real world of athletes and people who strive for healthy living and the environment that compels their dietary practices, with emphasis on strategies for improvement and consequences of sub-optimal nutritional practices."
