It is very comprehensive on metabolism of all nutrients, explaining about reactions, cycles, carriers, properties, functions, etc. It is not coloured, but the use of red helps to contrast especial aspects of figures and tables, in which, BTW, it is very rich. It has also several short texts at the end of each chapter called "Perspective" that addresses different diseases, current topics, etc.
In my opinion, if you want to deepen your knowledge on metabolism and on biochemistry of nutrition, this is the book you need. Be you a researcher, a professor, or a clinician, Advanced Nutrition will be a great addition to your "essential nutrition knowledge."

Before I started doing the assigned readings, I was failing the class, but once I cracked this baby open, I was a straight-A student once again. It also helps to have your chemistry book handy. It had forgotten what some of the chemical reactions were and why they mattered. Don't hesitate to stop and look up terms to get the full grasp of what is going on.
Now that I'm in the field, I still use this book all the time. It's way too much info for the average person to remember in detail months or years later, so I review concepts in this book often. I can't imagine the 6th edition has changed very drastically so I will wait until the 7th comes out before spending the money.
I also recommend buying the hard copy b/c you can now buy the Kindle edition for $9.99 or less IF you purchased the hard text new from Amazon.
