Editorial Reviews

Review

 "It would be a great reference for non-nutrition professionals to give them the basics about a wide variety of topics. This is a substantial book, and it could be seen as a one-stop reference for those looking for key information."

Format: Hardcover
I am a doctoral student in Nutritional Sciences and owner of the 10th edition of Modern Nutrition. I very much disagree with the shallow conclusion by 'Order of Canada', though I do agree that the 11th edition contains fewer pages than the 10th (with the amount of material I go through each day, I'm not going to complain about fewer pages). I have found that the 11th edition contains many important updates and is well written. It is also aesthetically more pleasing than the previous edition, which was grayscale (the new version includes blue). Most people who study nutrition will tell you that, if they had to choose one nutrition reference book, this is the one. Amazon needs to change the listing title; Shils is not the primary author, Ross is.

This is the bible of nutrition. And now that it is in Kindle format, it is so easy to search for any nutrition topic for which you need the definitive word. It always hits the mark, and helps you expand your knowledge base.

Great textbook but the Kindle version doesn't have the name of the article in the citation. I'm not sure if the textbook suffers from the same problem. It states the author, journal, year, volume, and page number so you can find out the name of the article but it does complication the process of reviewing the primary sources the text is based off of.

This is an advanced nutrition textbook and it's one of the better ones out there. There are few competitors. I find the depth and breadth better than you'll find in Present Knowledge in Nutrition.

I purchased this textbook because I own a previous edition. I decided to upgrade. I still think it is the Bible of nutrition.

I was using the earlier edition during the graduate years. It remains one of the best nutrition textbook reference for me. Thanks to the Kindle version for more convenience searching by keywords.
