Editorial Reviews

Review


"...an excellent piece of work. The book provides new insights and current understanding in the area of nutritional assessment. This is a must read for all students and practicing nutritionists." --African Journal of Food, Nutrition, Agriculture, and Development


"The first edition in 1990 of Rosalind Gibson's book in this field has become a Nutrition classic. All nutrition scientists, and those who depend on their work, from health care workers, to food regulators, policy makers and educators, can be relieved and pleased that there is now a new edition of this work, which turns out to be remarkably contemporary and relevant...This work is not only encyclopaedic on methodology and, therefore, an essential reference for nutrition practitioners, but provides much reconceptualism of our food and nutrition thinking."--Prof. Mark L. Wahlqvist, Asia Pacific Journal of Clinical Nutrition


"This second edition provides a needed update, given the significant increase in knowledge related to nutritional assessment as well as heightened research interest in the association between nutritional status and health. This is probably the best comprehensive reference in the field because it discusses the scientific principles of nutritional assessment as well as the application of nutritional assessment in both research and clinical practice settings."--Denise M. Ney, PhD, RD, Doody's


"This valuable text and guide to nutritional assessment of individuals and populations is a welcome rarity, a comprehensive and authoritative book written by a single author."--Food and Nutrition Bulletin


"...a timely, valuable and useful addition to the armamentarium of dietitians/nutritionists and other health professionals involved in nutrition."--South African Journal of Clinical Nutrition


"I would recommend this book to all health care professionals involved in nutritional assessment in acute and community settings."--British Dietetic Association


"I was delighted to find that the newly published, larger and bright orange(!) second edition remains equally encyclopaedic in its breadth and is wonderfully up to date...There is no question that this excellent update of Gibson's Principles of Nutritional Assessment will remain the essential reference book for nutrition students and researchers alike for many years to come."--British Journal of Nutrition

Ideal methods of nutritional assessment are sensitive and specific. Unfortunately, it is difficult to achieve both in the assessment of nutritional status. Sensitivity refers to the ability of a technique to correctly identify those affected by a condition (for example, under-nutrition) as having that condition. Specificity refers to the ability of a technique to correctly classify normal individuals as having normal nutritional status. Body mass index is a global measure of nutritional status that illustrates the difference between these two constructs. Most persons who consume insufficient energy have low body mass index, so the measure is sensitive. However, there are other causes of low body mass index, including genetics and disease, so body mass index is not specific to nutritional status. The above are what I wanted to understand before I made the purchase and fortunately this book clearly in the most simple terms gave good insight into these issues thereby assisting me to have a good stepping stone to proffering solutions to diverse nutritional assessment problems.

Green Hardcover (1990 publication):
A fantastic book; both technical and well referenced. I acquired this book years ago from during my graduate studies, and came to Amazon looking for an updated version. Found the green hardcover (1990) and the orange hardcover (2005) published versions. The 1990 version makes it difficult for me to suggest it is stil worth the price at ~$125. Get it used...and save a hundred dollars. The 2005 revision is less money; may entertain the purchase to compare.
