Reviews

...A basic guide providing concise, practical and easy to use information on some core areas of nutrition, and intended for quick reference. It certainly is very useful as such a guide. The book is structured in a very clear and easy to use way. The left of each double page contains the text, while on the right color plates illustrate the topic. This structure follows a similar one throughout the Thieme series of pocket guides and...it has been a well-established standard feature of these guides. The color plates are generally excellent and in many cases do not only serve as illustrative material, but summarize complex issues in a simple and didactically useful way. The book certainly achieves the goal to provide basic facts relevant in the field. The crucial advantage lies in this selectivity of topics and in an excellent didactic presentation of the material. I am certain that the book will be of particular interest as such a quick reference for researchers and practitioners, but it also will be of interest to students... Thus, it will also be crucial for informing a broader public about some of the core problems of all our societies, but most notably the ones with a diet which less and less relies on local and traditional knowledge, but instead more and more on ready made (convenience) food.--Journal of EthnopharmacologyThis book lives up to its name as a compact and thorough source of information on nutrition. The information is essentially presented in a 'dictionary' format although, unlike most dictionaries, it contains charts and color diagrams on every right-hand page, relating directly to the entries on the opposite page. The material is set out in a logical manner, making information easy to find without having to refer to the index. ...Delivers invaluable information.--Complementary Medicine
