This book is very insightful and not hard to read. I have had many in the past you need a medical dictionary along with a regular dictionary to get through. This book flows very well and is a book I will never get rid of as I plan on using it to look back on over and over again.

Overall, this is an easy-to-read and well written book. It balances the right amount of human physiology and nutrition without overwhelming the nutrition student who may not have a strong science background. I would give it 5 stars, if the author considered adding review questions at the end of each chapter. I think that would be helpful. There are, however, case study questions throughout the text, but no detailed answers in the appendix. I did check out the online practice questions from [...]. There are crossword puzzles, flashcards, tutorial quizzes, web links related to the chapter material provided, and they are free. You will have to type in the answers in the boxes provided. I think it would be more thought provoking, if Brown included essay type questions that require more thinking similar to the case study questions. Multiple choice from the book companion website were a bit bland; it provokes memorization not stimulate the student's ability to think.

This book was delivered quickly and I am very happy about the price. I purchased it for a class I was required to take for graduation from undergraduate and the price was so much better at Amazon. The book was in good condition when I received it and certainly better condition than many books at the college bookstores. Summary: I didn't particularly love the book but I had to have it and it was a great price, in good condition, and was delivered to my home promptly.

For the purposes of an undergraduate course, I think it definitely serves its purpose. The material is organized well and is written in concise manner. I haven't noticed the typos a previous reviewer complained about...perhaps I'm not reading the text closely enough? hahah. A major complaint is how in the world publishers can charge over $100 for a soft-cover text?!?! Simply ridiculous and really unconscionable.

They said they had to cancel my order because they were out of stock, but when I ordered it they said they had plenty of copies. I wish they would have mentioned they didn't have many and I would have looked somewhere else. Although they did say they refunded me so we will see.

Good information. I used this for undergrad and it was very helpful. I still have it today and use it as a reference.

This book has a lot of information, it is kind of hard to really focus in on the material because there is so much of it. I think that the book goes overkill on many of the topics. Sometimes I would have to answer questions for my class and use several different chapters just to get all of the information. Plain and simple, if you want a book that gives a lot of information and you are able to pick it out then this is your book, if you want a simple and to the point book then I would not suggest it.

I am reading this book for a course I am taking and am so far not impressed. It is pretty dull and there are quite a few typos and editing errors. It is definitely not worth the money!
