Last year the USDA updated the food groups again. If you purchase the book new you will get an insert with the updated "myplate" info. The used book does not contain the updated information so I'm having to go online to get the information I need for class. It is worth the savings to buy it used and go online for the myplate stuff I need for class.

I bought this book for a course and it is very well written. This is a massive amount of information but the book walks through each section nicely. There are numerous visuals to go with each group of information. I think some of the anatomy ones could be better, bigger and clearer but for the most part these are very well done.

I typically try to be cordial on reviews. When I see phrases in all caps, I imagine some delirious person who more than likely did not read the instructions. Well, I must admit, I read the directions and took a calculated risk. It did not work in my favor, however. I have purchased books on Amazon for 5 semesters now. I have yet to have any issue with it, until this book. I will say that once again, Amazon gets 5 stars for their customer service and attempting to help me, but this product is not worth the purchase.

The single most important thing in text books today: the online access code. Without this, many text books are no better than weights in your already strained backpack. I purchased this because so many people said it worked for them while only a couple it did not. I, again, took a chance hoping this would work out for me. However, the code did not work. Amazon sent me another book/code, but honestly, I simply sent it back because it was in the same exact packaging. The ISBN on the shrink wrap of the book is different than the ISBN of the book itself. Utilizing the campus bookstore online, I double checked that, in fact, I ordered the correct ISBN, but for what ever reason, (neither Pearson or Amazon could explain) the access code did not work. I presume it has something to do with the ISBN's being different. Why it would work for some and not others is a mystery.

I ended up spending another $42 for the online access and $16 for the MyDietAnalysis access. If I say anything in caps, it is this: RENT OR BUY THIS BOOK USED. Then pay for whatever online access your professor requires. I fortunately had money in the bank to just say screw it and make the purchase, but if you're a starving college student, do not buy it new.

Hi, just putting this out there. Even though this is a 2nd Edition and the 'newest' edition, there are two versions of this 2nd Edition, this one and the "My Plate" version, and the "My Plate" one being the newest most up to date one. The two books are the same, it just comes with an insert. You really are not missing anything you cannot access online. So, as I have read from another reviewer, it is really worth the savings to just get this one if you even need a book. Personally, I have never used a text book I ever bought in college. There is also an online site that you can access with or without the book (some stuff you do not even need the access code)with chapter reviews, and quizzes that is helpful.

Not that you'll have a choice in getting this because it's probably required for a class, but I found several places in the book with poor nutritional advice. Even my professor acknowledged my concerns. There is also good information but I think this book is only worthwhile for people who know almost nothing about nutrition, and even then I'd recommend a different book before this one.

I had to buy it for class. The book goes along with all the obsolete dogmas of nutrition 'science', in service to the food industry. Too bad if it's your textbook, you won't learn anything useful from it, in fact it would be dangerous to your health, if you believed it.
All the 'extras' on the Pearson site are just as useless.

The most annoying thing, though, is that Pearson does NOT honor the codes you buy through Amazon, and actually goes as far as to accuse Amazon of fraudulently selling previously used codes. Amazon should sue them. However, you are caught in the middle and would lose your money, if it weren't for Amazon's stellar return policy.

One star for the book and code (would be 0 if I could), 5 stars as usual for Amazon.

I purchased this book for a class I started a week ago. The school wanted $156 for this book and I found it here for only $0.50. Yes, I couldn't believe the price of the book when I first see it, I had to double check it because I couldn't believe my eyes. I just received my book today; rapid service. This book is in excellent condition. There are no visible marks or rips on the book. It practically looked like I just walked in the bookstore and purchased it. I'm very satisfied with my purchase and I recommend this seller to anyone. Nutrition and You

Missing a few of the studies/graphs from the newer edition and some of the page numbers are inconsistent between the two versions but overall I was able to find all the info I needed and managed to pass my nutrition class that required this book with a B+, so I guess it worked well enough!
