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.

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.

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.

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!

I read this book for my macro- and micronutrient metabolism courses and felt it helped tremendously. It really made all the info my professors were cramming into 45 min lectures come together for me. I also found it really helped to read it out loud and use my hands to help me visualize which way things were moving in and out of cells and whatnot. Although it is great info, it is a science text, so it's easy for your mind to wander.

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.

This text has been very useful so far.

Easy to navigate with useful biochemical diagrams and good coverage of a complex topic.

It has so far been a good text for my work, supplemented with related texts on the topics of interest being the pharmacology of non-xenobiotic substances.
