The first three chapters are about the vitamins, minerals, and fats & fiber. Each of these important pieces of our nutrition are "listed", and then for each is a chart showing the rankings of the Top 7 food sources for each. There are also Honorable Mentions and then a general "Best Food Groups".
There is a brief narrative for why this piece of nutrition, i.e Vitamin C, is so important, a chart showing how much is enough for people of a particular sex, age, if they're pregnant, or lactating. There is also a brief narrative detailing what happens if you have too much of a particular item in your diet.
There is a paragraph that describes supplements, and then detailed paragraphs that illustrate why each of those Top 7 food sources (mentioned previously) are important to that vitamin, mineral, etc. Sometimes, there is even a "Shocker Food" (not previously listed) that is a good source of a particular piece of nutrition.
The second section of this book showcases foods for "whatever ails you". These are the best foods to prevent and help combat many different medical issues / diseases.
Section three is a "Best in Show". These are the BEST foods in various categories, including Dairy, Grains, Gluten-Free Grains, Fruits, Vegetables, Proteins, Snack Food, and more!

I only intended to glance through this, but a bout of insomnia one night, changed that plan.

I started reading this, and could not put it down. I wasn't interested in all of the political information surrounding Rhodes, Ohio's Longest Serving Governor, but most of this was very interesting and VERY readable!
James A. Rhodes was born in Coalton, a small town in Southeast Ohio, and not too far from where I was raised. As such, he had a love for the area from whence he originated, but always worked hard (politician) to ensure that the rest of the state was treated fairly, as well.
This is a well-researched and objective look at Rhodes life. The authors don't pull any punches -- the good, as well as the bad are both here.
A list of highlights and lowlights can be found towards the end of the book. Some of his accomplishments include:
*Established the Ohio Board of Regents, coordinating state funding and programming for higher education.
*Added six state universities, up to two dozen university branch campuses and created a system of twenty-one state funded community and technical colleges. His goal was to have a college within thirty miles of every young man and woman in the state.
*Built 85 county airports, which he said were needed so corporate executives could easily fly their jets into all counties and make plans to open job-creating factories and stores.
*Oversaw completion of the interstate highway system in Ohio and made progress on the Appalachian Highway system, linking rural areas in southern Ohio with major cities. Side Note: We now have the US 32 aka the James A. Rhodes Appalachian Highway in Southern Ohio, which links Marietta / Athens to Cincinnati.
*Added six state parks to the park system.
*Established the Ohio Adult Parole Authority and began construction of the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility -- a maximum security prison housing death-row inmates in Lucasville.
*Established the Ohio Administration on Aging, later to become the Ohio Commission on Aging, which offers special services for senior citizens, including the Golden Buckeye Card retail discount.
*Established the Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) to assist low-income Ohioans in paying their winter heating bills.
*Attracted Honda Motor Company motorcycle and auto-manufacturing plants to Marysville, a Ford Motor Company plant to Batavia, and General Motors expansion in Moraine.
*Four individuals were killed and nine others wounded after Rhodes sent the Ohio National Guard to Kent State University campus to quell a student anti-war demonstration.
*In May 1967, Ohio voters defeated a proposed constitutional amendment that would have established an Ohio Bond Commission to decide on all sate capital improvements and sell the bonds to fund the projects, thus eliminating the need for voter approval of additional debt for such costly building plans.
*Voters soundly defeated Rhode's three overly ambitious bond issues and a business tax relief issue in 1975. However, all or parts of them became a reality over the next twenty years.
