All jokes aside, while students may gripe about having to shell out the bucks for this textbook, it is well worth the money. I've got an earlier edition and have used it a lot in the past. I found the later editions to be very up to date and quite useful as a reference for some of the clinical questions I encounter while working with patient education issues. In the days of picky insurance reimbursement, it's vital that all the stuff we do be based on sound clinical information showing that what we do is indeed effective. <BR/><BR/>Easy to understand, and a well laid-out text with many good illustrations, there's a good reason why it's a standard in the field. Can also recommend The Sixty-Second Motivator for people who have trouble sticking to a healthy diet. After all, what good is nutritional advice if no one is motivated enough to follow it?

I took this course in college in 1977. It was one of my favorite classes. The text book is one of the few I have kept all of these years. Thirty years later I am purchasing a copy for my daughter-in-law!
The book covers the science of nutrition. It provides aids to calculate metabolism. Also, it includes a table of food composition which includes everything from calories to vitamins.

This was a good book to keep even beyond its 'textbook use'. It contains information easy enough to grasp and read for personal knowledge to aid decision making for anyone trying to eat a healthy balanced diet.Was this review helpful?
