  • "The reading level of the book allows quick comprehension and reading ease. It attracts my attention for pleasure reading, instead of only for educational purposes. I like the "Quick Look at the Chapter Ahead". It prepares me and directs my attention toward the information in the chapter. The questions and answers at the end of the chapter are super for determining my retention of the information. I especially like the answers with rationales. Then I can learn from my mistakes."

    --Robin York

    “Young nurses seeking to learn the intricacies of nutrition won’t find a better resource than this text: Its crisp presentation and sharp writing make it appropriate for classroom use in courses that train both nurses and hospital dieticians on how to develop meal plans for patients”

    --John Aiello
