Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Lynn Danford, MS (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This book provides a current and complete history of the soybean. It includes 12 chapters, one appendix and a large list of references. The focus is on the relationship between soya and individual soya components and various health conditions. Using sources from both scientific and lay literature, the book reports references to clinical and biochemical effects related to soya.
Purpose: The objective is to describe the medicinal benefits of soybeans and enhance scientific understanding about soya and individual soya components. This objective is partially met. Assumptions about benefits in certain conditions are not scientifically valid.
Audience: The book is intended for healthcare professionals. Clinicians may find it of interest, but there is no material related to clinical applications. Most professionals will be bothered by statements presented as facts without adequate documentation; poor and inconsistent writing style; and oversimplification of basic terminology. Researchers interested in soy will find it useful as a handbook. The author's biography and credentials are not included.
Features: Overall, the book's appearance is good. The format and chapter organization provide easy access to information. Within each chapter, however, pertinent facts are sometimes obscured by an excessive amount of general information of questionable relevance. There is only one illustration and the quality is poor. Although the reference list is exhaustive, several sources referred to in the text are missing. The numerous tables are inadequately referenced. An appendix describing individuals who have studied soya is of questionable interest to the intended audience.
Assessment: The book can be recommended as a general resource but with reservations for a scientific audience. Shortcomings in both content and style are significant.
