Review from previous edition: "This book fills an important gap...ideal for the busy practitioner or scholar of other disciplines who is eager to learn more about nutrition but hasn't the time to do a lot of reading. Quick, concise and accurate information...highly recommended."
--European Journal of Clinical Nutrition May 2009
"...730 pages worthy of a place in the clinician's library of practical information. It enunciates the principles and contemporary science on which clinical (and, in large measure, public health) nutrition should be based."
--Asia Pacific Journal of Clinical Nutrition December 2006
"it is well structured...[and] any health professional working in the area of nutrition would find it a useful quick reference."
--British Journal of Hospital Medicine 07/07/07
