    Superbly Written Student-friendly book on Nutrition! This really is one of the most superbly-written books on nutrition I have ever read! And believe me I have a lot of books on Nutrition. If you want to understand nutrition, especially the science of nutrition, as well as its practical application, this is the book for you. Written in an extremely student-friendly way, the authors of this book really do take difficult biochemical concepts and present them in terms and graphics that are very easy to understand, even for someone who has no science background or has not taken a course in Anatomy and Physiology.One of the authors was recognized with a National award for Excellence in College and University teaching in the Food and Agricultural Sciences by the USDA, and another author has special expertise in communicating complicated physiological processes with easily understood graphical presentations. While I have a more holistic approach to nutrition than authors of this book and do not necessarily agree with some of the statements made in the book about the safety of GM foods or no need for dietary supplements, this does not detract one bit from my opinion of the the overall excellence of this nutrition textbook. if someone wants to really learn about the science of nutrition and is looking for a student-friendly book that is easy to understand, and/or is struggling to understand the science concepts in other nutrition texts, look no further. This is the nutrition book for you!
