This is a reference book, and provides for very, very dry recreational reading. Additionally, it would be greatly useful to somebody concerned with Caloric intake, and other dieting practices. Unfortunately, this was not me.Reading this book recreationally was like reading the Book of Numbers recreationally, only a little more gross, especially in the meats section. Who knew that fried brains and raw tripe were actually eaten by PEOPLE? Ugh.The book, being a pocket-sized thing, is easy to cart around to all those places where you just don't have ready access to the nutritional information of the thing you're about to eat. Likewise, it's pretty exhaustive, listing things you'd never even imagine you'd be eating, as well as how many calories it has. Likewise, it has a listing of foods that are naturally high in certain vitamins and fatty acids.This book may be helpful to those wanting to learn more about nutrition, but it won't be helpful if you're already fit, have a good diet, and like to read books that are entertaining.
