"The purpose is to highlight the point that what people do in their daily lives matters and if healthcare professionals can begin to incorporate more nutrition information and counseling in their dealings with patients ... . The audience is healthcare professionals, and many of the chapters, written by dietitians, highlight references and resources for registered dietitian nutritionists. ... This is a nice first edition and a valuable resource and reference for all healthcare professionals to use in their daily practices." (Amy Hess-Fischl, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2016)
