On the plus side, the book is very complete as an introduction to food analysis and could be used as a good reference for those times when you find yourself thinking "how do people test for ______ again?" There are numerous references and typically, the reader is referred to a few detailed sources if more information is desired. The book is fairly concise and doesn't dwell on any one topic too long, which allows for learning a lot of basic knowledge very quickly. It is designed for college students and basic grad school courses in food analysis. And for what it is designed for, it works well.
On the negative side, there are times where it feels like too much information is trying to be crammed into a few pages and the reader is left feeling overwhelmed. There are study questions at the end of each chapter which are often very basic and can be difficult to connect to the text. Additionally, the outline/subsections of each chapter can get to be too much (I think there are sections like 220.127.116.11.5.1) - a simpler format would have been appreciated.
Overall, I would recommend it as a reference for knowing which technique to use when, and as a teaching tool for broad based introductions to food analysis.
