    3.0 out of 5 stars I prefer the older edition May 31, 2012
    By Hey You
    Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
    It pretty much has the same information in it as the previous edition. The nutrition care process is covered better in this edition. The appendices have the medical terminology sheets for the nutrition care process, whereas the 12th edition didn't. The beginning of each chapter doesn't have the definitions with the terms for that chapter like the 12th edition. I just like the layout of the 12th edition better.

    5.0 out of 5 stars The bible of the Nutritionists January 19, 2012
    By Primo
    Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
    This edition is no so different than before.
    The only drawback is the very thin pages paging.
    The advantage that the book weighs less and therefore it can be sent overseas cheap.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Food and the NCP February 16, 2013
    Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
    I bought this book for a class. It has lots of information. Some of the explanations are not clear. Older versions have definitions at the beginning of each chapter. This version only has a list of the words. Sometimes you can find definitions in the chapter, and some only discuss the subject without defining it. I prefer the older version.

    Its a good book, with accurate details for MNT. However, the layout of the chapters is odd and doesnt seem to flow as well as other nutrition books I used in undergrad.

    Classmates told me I needed to get the "Krause" that it will make a difference in my dietetic education and academic life. They were not lying.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Krause review February 20, 2013
    Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
    Overall, clinically this book is a great resource for anyone working or studying to work in the nutrition field. I gave it a low rating as 6 months after purchasing it, when I was now getting to the higher chapters...I noticed that there were missing pages. My book goes stops at page 309 to page 341. The pages were not ripped out. It is nicely bound with 2 chapters missing most of the pages. Not much good as a text at this point.

    By LuQA

    This was one of my favourites !!

    If you are in the dietetics field with no book what so ever, this book will make a great reference of information for almost all nutrition related topics.

    In addition to that it is colourful and appealing to study from and descirbes and transfers the information in a great way

    I highly recommend it !!!
