Review:

"This book provides a comprehensive, up-to-date, evidence-based guide which takes the reader through all matters relating to nutrition and disease and around issues of value of nutrition in health promotion and disease prevention". (British Journal of Hospital Medicine, 1 January 2011)

"The book starts with a clear, practical and thorough guide to basic nutritional assessment in clinical care, which emphasizes the importance and potential pitfalls of taking a diet history. . . the chapters are written so that they can be clearly understood by those with little experience in the area of dietetics, so this book would be useful for any practitioner wanting to improve knowledge when other resources are unavailable, or other options for continual professional development are not attainable". (International Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation, 1 December 2010)

"For practicing physicians and nutritionists. with many references. Recommended." (Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews, April 2010)
