"The major topics are addressed nicely. I like the authors' easy and professional writing style. Sizer and Whitney know their subject material coming and going."
"I like the level at which the text is written. It works very well for the undergraduate nutrition classes that I teach. I like how easy it is to find information, text headings, tables and figures all help. Difficult concepts are explained through figures or pictures."
"This format helps the reader in not only learning about nutrition facts, but to also appreciate and understand several controversies surrounding the field of nutrition."
"The text is clearly written and provides thorough explanations of concepts and terms. The controversy sections are particularly insightful, include current research information, and provide a balanced and thorough review of topics, such as phytochemicals and functional foods."
