5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Jan. 4 2007
By R. Day - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
An amazing book if you want a great overview of nutrition with attention to current policies and recommendations. There are numerous supplements on special topics throughout the book. I have already recommended this book to every other student in my nutrition program. I would like to point out that this book does not describe the biochemical detail of the nutrients and other topics - get another book for that.

This book breaks everything down so it is easy to understand and categorize. It has all the important definitions in the margins as well as bold within the text and it has many pictures and diagrams to supplement the text. Well organized, and logical content, Perspectives in Nutrition is the best book for a study in Nutrition.

By Vickie Vose - Published on Amazon.com
I love the convenience of ordering my college books on-line. Amazon.com always comes through with fast delivery. I received my textbook, Perspectives in Nutrition, 7th ED., in less than a week. (I've experienced deliveries of 1 month + with other on-line text sources).

3.0 out of 5 stars Good if you want a scientific explanation of nutrition. Feb. 27 2009
By Helen Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
It's...well...a textbook. It covers a lot of the chemistry of nutrition...if you don't understand chemistry, it's very difficult to follow. I learned a lot from it.
