Got this for my nutrition class, I still reference it from time to time.
Excellent condition!!! Book is basically brand new.. okay shipping time but well worth it! Great price!
I got an older edition of this for my brother who is easily led astray by cranks and quacks who prey on people with little knowledge of human physiology or nutrition. (He's great on quantum physics and advanced math, but not bio sciences.) He's very happy with it and already has done some checking into info on Vitamin D. He hasn't reported any concerns either with the info presented nor with his ability to make sense of the science without much of a background beyond high school biology. I'd recommend it to anyone curious about nutritional issues or who find themselves lost between news stories of recent re and counter-claims about the info presented.
If you've made it theough high school chemistry you would likely find this text useful.
I'm currently studying up for a Fitness Nutrition Specialist Certification through NASM, and this is the book they gave me as an Ebook. I wanted a hard copy-I'm happy! Easy reading ????
