      I needed this text book for my studies and although it contains a lot of scientific and heavy information, it is written and presented in a way that is easy to follow and engaging with lots of pictures, diagrams and call outs.

        Comments about Understanding Nutrition:

        I actually needed to buy this book as a textbook for university, but it's a really good resource. There is so much content that is easy to understand and flows really well. There are many pictures and tables that help translate the text into more understandable concepts.

        There is also an associated student support website with extra information and test questions.

        This will be a book I will keep and refer too long after the subject I'm studying is completed.

          This is a great guide for health professionals. It has plenty of detail without the detail getting to the point where it bogs you down.
