Pros: lot of interesting facts
Cons: could have been better
Paperback Publisher: McGraw-Hill Science/Engineering/Math; 6 edition (July 5, 2006)
The Contemporary Nutrition Sixth Edition Update is an excellent book designed for students with little or no background in college-level biology, chemistry or physiology.
The book is good except it makes you wonder why we bother with it since the nutritional pyramid changed anyhow. It was great to find that book covered some healthy suggestion to lower down cholesterol.
"Contemporary Nutrition" will provide students who lack a strong science background the ideal balance of reliable nutrition information and practical consumer-oriented knowledge. With his friendly writing style, Gordon Wardlaw acts as the student's personal guide to dispelling common misconceptions and to gaining a solid foundation for making informed nutrition choices.
This book was easy to use and I needed this book as it has a lot of interesting facts which are well put together, my only suggestion would be to not have this book in paperback. This book will is a good guide to contemporary nutrition and I recommend it.
