5.0 out of 5 stars Great textbook March 26, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this textbook for a basic nutrition class I am currently taking. It was significantly cheaper than one at the school bookstore(I find a lot of my textbooks on Amazon for huge savings!) I find the book wonderful as an introductory book! The information is clear and easy to understand. Even items that pertain to chemistry are presented in a way that you can actually understand them. I think the pictures are beautiful and I even love the fact that they give you some recipes in each chapter. I love this textbook. Even if you are not a student, one might be just trying to get healthier, it's a great tool to start!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent buy! April 12, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Book was brand new -as advertised. In excellent conditions. Well packaged, without any bending, and delivered before the estimated date (I received it within a week and it was supposed to take about 12-14 days). As of the book itself, it is very useful, and interesting. I learned a lot! I took a Nutrition class as a General Ed in college as part of the curriculum of my program, but it was amazing how much I learn about healthy and unhealthy diets, vitamins, antioxidants, food labeling, food marketing, etc etc. You don't need to have a lot of background knowledge in science to be able to understand the concepts. The author gives you tips and recipes at the end of each chapter as well as chapter tests.
I am very happy and satisfied with this purchased. I definitely recommend buying this book and from this seller.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little disapointed March 12, 2012
By apalm
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was glad to find this book on kindle for cheaper then the actual textbook. Unfortunately it will not open up on my kindle touch or kindle fire. For the most part I just use my laptop for homework anyway, but I would like to be able to open in it up on my actual KINDLE devices.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor condition June 20, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book was described as a good condition book, however, when I received the book it was in shambles. The pages were all marked up, the cover was almost falling off, and the spine is destroyed...
