This is my text book for class. I haven't completely finished it yet, but since I'm on chapter 11 (the mother of all chapters in this book, apparently), I feel as though I can give my general impressions and thoughts on the book.

Elson M. Haas injects his own personality and ideas into this text, which is a bit more entertaining than reading the usual college text. It's very informative and thorough, even though some of his information isn't correct. SOME. Note I said some! For the most part, it

Excellent source book for anyone in the nutritional field. It is one of the textbooks that I needed for school, and I am definitely keeping it. I find this is my first go to book when looking for information. Haas does a great job outlining information so that its easy to read and thorough.

A book that goes perfectly with this one: A-Z Drug-Herb-Vitamin Interaction guide. Lists specific contraindications with prescription medicine and vitamin-herbs. To me, these two books are assets and really c

This book is HUGE and a GREAT source of information. It's not the type of book that you sit down and read from cover to cover (although you could if you wanted) but rather I've been using it as a reference. It's organized and easy to look things up, and the information she gives is very informative and non-judgemental.

It's really made me think about what I am putting in my body and in my children's bodies. In fact, I guess the only negative is that it made me want to go through my cupboards and

My least favorite book from my NTA class.

This is a very informative book about nutrition and health. It talks a lot about vitamins, foods, diet, and other health related topics. The book is over 900 pages long. I think it is suitable as a reference book. I read the sections I was interested in and skipped a lot.

There are four main sections: The Building Blocks; Foods, Diets, Nutritional Habits, and the Environment; Building a Healthy Diet; and Nutritional Application: 32 Special Diets and Supplement Programs.
I made it through this entire textbook plus answering questions and 2 tests in 11 weeks.
This book is filled with some amazing information on ourselves and on our planet. Reading about preventative medicine really inspires me to be more proactive in my own health rather than reactive.
The information provided is extensive and covers a wide range of topics.
Definitely a must for my nutrition collection

I got this book for my herbalist course that I've half finished. It's a great reference for alternative/complementary courses. It's easy to use and I think it's one of those books that you'll always go back to.

A lot of really amazing information, also a lot of rambling - but all in all a very informative read! One of those books I could return to a million times over. Much beneficial information to delve into.

Fabulous information about nutrition written so that it all makes perfect sense. Use this as a reference/text book. It will always be on my "currently reading" list.

The resolution of this crisis is so fundamental to our personal health and the health of our planet that we must look more closely at water than we look at any other nutrient.
