I gladly spent the $90+ on this book just because the editors, Lonnie Lowery and Joey Antonio, have helped me so much over the past decade with my articles and books. They've been remarkably generous with their time and expertise, and they're both fun guys to hang out with as well. But even if they were they biggest jerks in academia this book would be a bargain. I'm just over halfway through, and already I can say it's saved me countless hours on PubMed.

I say this despite the fact I was ready to shelve the book after I tried and failed to make any sense of the material in Chapter 2, which explains protein synthesis and breakdown. I picked a paragraph at random and read it aloud to a group of fitness and nutrition pros at a recent conference. One of the smartest nutrition researchers I know conceded he couldn't make heads or tails of it without stopping to look up most of the acronyms and abbreviations.

I'm glad I kept reading, because the rest of the book is magnificent, and even Chapter 2 is probably a great resource for people who need to know the difference between eIF4E, eIF4G, and eIF4A, as well as the path mRNA takes to 43S liftoff. (At least, that's what I think the paragraph is about.)

The chapters on protein sources, supplement research, weight control, and gender- and age-related issues are a gold mine of important information that's clearly explained, deeply resourced, and at times even slyly funny (like the Lucky Charms reference on page 180).

If you're a fitness or nutrition professional, or a journalist like me who writes about those subjects, I can't imagine any single-topic book providing a better or more authoritative resource.

Format: Hardcover
As the CEO of a personal training company, and a speaker on fitness and nutrition, I hear all kinds of questions, comments and misconceptions about protein.

This book touches on just about every aspect of protein you can possibly think of, like:

- How do the different types of protein (soy vs. whey vs. casein) differ from each other?
- Does protein damage the kidneys?
- How much protein do you need?
- Which supplements work, and which ones are hogwash?

Yes, at certain points it gets even more technical than I would need to know, but someone who is a researcher would definitely be interested in those details.

Also, the authors argue both for and against different points, giving the reader a well-rounded view of an issue, and not just a single side of an issue.

Lastly, what I liked about the book is that it takes a look at the misconceptions surrounding protein. It shows why the misconception arose, and looks at research that either supports or refutes it.

All in all, I highly recommend this book.

Great reviews of studies performed on the physiology behind types of proteins, creatine, amino acids and performing resistance exercises. Looks at the science behind many of the items in question and dispels many myths. Very informative and a great addition to the library to anyone who is an exercise physiologist, trainer, or in sports medicine.
