Just when I thought the health and nutrition industry could sink no lower, I had the wondrous delight of encountering this wretched book in my intro to nutrition class.Though it may be a very readable textbook, that does not excuse all the factual blunders that continually plague some of the pages. I had to wear sunglasses each time I read this because the level of ignorance was just blinding.

The text makes outrageous statements such as animal protein is clearly the most superior incarnation of

This book was interesting to read. Lots of good advice. Some parts I disagreed with though. It seems nutrition is the never ending debate.

Highly recommended book for anyone thinking about or studying nutrition. It isn't just the content, it is the ideas and background reading it provides. As with all nutrition books, by the time you start reading it, it will be out of date. Read it for what it is, a really well thought out book on nutrition. I actually bought copies for friends who were also interested in nutrition. I must admit that I only bought them second hand as a copy of a new one is extortionately priced.

Provides a large volume critical information, but scattered 'infobites' detract from the raw, necessary information to be memorized. Many a sciences textbook is plagued by the introduction of extraneous information, so as to 'excite' and 'relate to' the reader. Unfortunately, this does nothing but fatigue and overwhelm the eyes. Text was also ridiculously overpriced for what is received in the package.

This was the pre-nursing prerequisite class for getting into nursing school, i.e. science-based nutrition. It was a good foundation class text. But this book doesn't take into account the science of what happens to different foods once inside the body and the combining aspects in the digestive process. So it's science-based, just outside of the body.

This was a textbook for one of my classes and has been the only textbook I have actually entirely read. I loved all the information in it, and I kept the book for my home library for reference. It is a great book if you are looking for detailed information on vitamins, nutrients, and how they work in the body.

Let's hope this becomes the first class I actually finish since my official college career. I have started many since then and finished none.

Finish Ch. 10. Then, 12-15.

Well, finished the class, but not the book. This was so last year. Very readable for a textbook.

Excellent book regarding nutrition and the human body and its processes. A lot of information on healthy food options and what nutritional value foods hold.

Read it for a class. Pretty basic, easy reading. Personally I would have preferred something with a little more depth.
