Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Beverly S. Farmer, RNC, MSN (Deaconess Hospital)
Description: This is the third edition of a nutrition book that was previously published in 1988 and 1992. The book presents nutrition concepts integrated into each life stage. Within each of the stages, nutrition needs and influences on growth and development, psychosocial and biophysical aspects are discussed. The book begins with the young adult at the age of conceiving and carries through the life span with emphasis on each stage.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an overall understanding of the concepts of nutrition within each life stage from conception through death.
Audience: The target audience is students in nursing or other allied healthcare professions. The book gives information to assist the healthcare provider in developing an overall assessment and plan of care for the nutritional needs of patients/clients.
Features: This book provides a good table of contents and index that allows for the ease of finding specific topics. The page layout promotes ease of reading with bold subheadings and a glossary in the margins that defines any words that the reader might not be familiar with.
Assessment: This nutrition book is a good reference for the healthcare student. It provides current information with strong integration of research findings in the form of tables and charts. The layout of the book allows the reader to find information about nutritional needs within each life stage. The book emphasizes normal growth and development and explains diseases and disorders in relation to nutrition in the life stage. Case studies add an element of practical understanding to each life stage. A special section in many chapters that is titled "One Step Further" provides valuable information to further explain major concepts in the reading. Individuals, healthcare facilities, and health related libraries would find this a valuable resource to purchase.
