Format: Paperback
This book might serve the purpose of an athlete, but may not be good for a typical student or non-student.
It has cited too many references, as if it is for a student pursuing a research program. An average undergraduate student has no time to scan through piles of references cited in this book.
It has little by way of visual aids.
Its contents do not present a straightforward methodology for an average person to deduce pros and cons of a food menu.
It has some biased opinions. For example, Figure 1.4 does not list Smoking as a possible cause for Lung Cancer.
It does not give any information about the author, apart from the author's being at the Old Dominion University.
The web link [...] stated on the back page of this book is not valid. This becomes a frustrating experience.
The book is in Paperback format, is used mainly by community-college students with limited budgets for books, and is not a monopoly book. Many better and cheaper textbooks on this subject are available from other publishers. Thus, this book's price tag of $95 is super high. Even the 7th edition's price tag of $75 seems to be high.

I bought this book for a health course but I still have it and refer to it for personal use. Has great information for people who would rather do home remedies for treating common colds and gives great advice and improving immune system and really helps people understand good nutrition and weight loss and learn weight loss skills that really do work.

This is a required text for an online nutrition course that I'm taking. The book is ok .. reads like a high school health book and I wouldn't recommend the book for a general audience.

I gave this book and the shipping quality a five star rating. Amazon did a wonderful job of fulfilling this order and Rentu did a good job of sending a book in good condition.
Yes I would recommend.

Buy it for class, use it, and then sell it to get most of your money back... Its not something you will want to keep to use.
