This book is required in my nutrition class and it has been very useful. It gives great nutritional facts and Amazon really got it to me quick. I didn't have to wait long at all there were no delays or problems with my book getting to me, and I have started this semester off well because all of my books arrived on time. There also is a helpful online review center that you can register for if you buy your book new.

I love this product. It's very simple and easy to read. Not a huge bore unlike some textbooks. Also, it gives information about current status of the American eating habits and other nations.
