"The greatest strength of this text is that it is up-to-date, the topics covered are very relevant, and the student can easily put into practice the advice and information given in each chapter."
"The greatest strength of the text is the presentation of the information. The content is difficult but presented in a way that allows almost any college student to be interested and yet understand. The content is also highly personalized so students can apply knowledge to their own needs. There are many teaching suggestions and activities provided to enhance students' ability to personalize and internalize the content. The graphs and diagrams are also good. Margins provide definitions, small diagrams, pictures, summaries of larger data right along with the text explaining concepts in more detail."
"As my course is taught to non-majors, the greatest strength of this text is its user friendliness. A feature that contributes to this is the information provided in the sidebars, which I refer to frequently to keep students on track, and the accompanying acetates that often contain the same information."
"Strength - practical information that students can apply to their own lives. Students can see how to put nutrition knowledge into action in order to have a more healthful lifestyle. Easy to read; Love the cartoons. 'Scorecards' and 'Nutrition Action' are exceptional."
