Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Annette M Chmielewski, B.S., M.S.(UIC College of Applied Health Sciences)
Description: This thoughtfully designed book on dietetics as a profession includes quotes at the start of many chapters, profiles of professionals in the field, and black-and-white photos, as well as numerous resources, websites, and readings to reference. The previous edition was published in 2006.
Purpose: This is an excellent reference for students interested in the field of nutrition/dietetics. It helps them understand who dietetics professionals are, what they do, and how to become a professional in the field as a dietary manager, a dietetic technician registered, or a registered dietitian.
Audience: Students researching dietetics will find this book to be a helpful tool in guiding them in their decision to work in dietetics.
Features: The book covers working with members of a healthcare team and providing diet education. For students, the book provides information on the educational path to the dietetic internship, getting credentialed, creating a resume, and preparing for an interview. One of the best features is the profile of two professionals at the end of each chapter, which allows readers to see other available options for dietitians in addition to the clinical area.
Assessment: As a student who just finished the dietetic internship, I can see how this book would be a helpful resource for future students or students just entering a program. I wish my program had recommended this book to us just before we started, so that we could have begun with a broader perspective of the field.
