Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Carol Boswell, Ed.D.(Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center)
Description: This book is designed to inform individuals about the different dietetic programs that are available. The expectations for different levels of practice in the area of nutrition and healthcare seem to be focus. The previous editions were published in 1996 and 2000.
Purpose: According to the authors, the purpose is to increase interest in the profession of dietetics. When individuals have a better understanding of the skills needed to do the work, they are more likely to get involved. This is the third edition within 11 years, which raises the question as to how much this profession has changed during this time to require three editions.
Audience: The audience is potential students, apparently. It is written at an appropriate reading level to encourage beginning workers to consider this profession. The author is a credible authority.
Features: The book intends to provide an overview of the different employment opportunities in the field of dietetics. How to get into the field is covered for beginning potential employees. The book includes profiles of successful individuals. However, these individuals are at the top of the employment structure which could be a little stressing to students just beginning. The art work is all black and gray, not very inviting.
Assessment: This would be helpful for use at a high school level to introduce students to the different employment opportunities in the field.

Payne-Palacio (Pepperdine U.) and Canter (Kansas State U.) offer a guide for students who think they might want to enter the field but know little about it. They explain who dietetics professionals are, what they do, and the many different ways to become one. They discuss the history, how dietetics qualifies as a profession, how members of a team work together, credentialing, positions filled, and the future of the practice. The first edition was published in 1996. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
