1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Laura Gougeon on Feb. 27 2010
Format: Hardcover
I bought this book mainly for my PhD comprehensive exams in Nutrition. My department is pretty demanding and they ask you a lot of questions regarding biochemistry. Several friends of mine recommended this book. And it was indeed a great acquisition! One of the best purchases I've made so far! I'm sure it will be useful not only for the comps, but also to my research/teaching career.

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."

Read this front to back before grad school March 17 2010
By J. Katz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book provides essential nutrition basics. It is easy to understand and you can lift it without back strain. I bought it while midway through my graduate courses in nutrition, though should have read it before and used it as a reference during.

great book June 28 2010
By g.richardson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is thorough and does not make assumptions. It definitely states when a theory is a theory as opposed to fact. It is easy to understand and a great asset in continuing nutrition education. I do wish the book companion site was more interactive, but overall great book.

As Good As New Jan. 15 2014
By Jamie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My biochem professor recommended that we get the 6th edition of this book because the information might be slightly different. The text is exactly the same, the only difference are the pictures and diagrams (and the price tag). I'd recommend this option if you don't want to break the bank.

Rent don't buy Dec 30 2012
By Milkman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I rented this book from Amazon for a couple of classes I was taking in my Dietetics program for pennies on what it would have cost me to rent it from the University book store. I ended up going with the kindle version and I was pleasantly surprised by being able to use the search features for looking things up quickly and referencing. I used this on my Macbook pro and if you are writing a research paper it auto cite's for your bibliography (great feature!)!!! The material can be dry at times but it had everything I needed for class in an easy format. The rental program is the way to go!

Each page is very information dense in terms of nutritional biochemistry. One of the most information dense textbook i have read.
