Quotes, Reviews or Testimonials
"While there are many basic nutrition textbook options for nursing students, this one may be attractive to some professors since it includes a test bank of over 450 questions. The update does offer the reader solid, basic information regarding nutrition in the context of health."
-- Amy Hess Fischl, MS RDN LDN BC-ADM CDE (University of Chicago Medical Center) Doody's Review
Intended for nursing students, dietetic assistants, diet technicians and "others." This is an appropriate audience since it does cover very basic topics, giving just enough information. One author is a nurse, the other is a registered dietitian nutritionist, and both are qualified to discuss the topics at hand.
