Published Reviews of the First Edition "Sports Nutrition provides the reader with a concise and accessible body of information in all of the major nutritional requirements of athletes and recreational enthusiasts." Division of Nutritional Biochemistry, University of Nottingham British Journal of Nutrition "This book is a great resource for anyone working with athletes. It is a quick reference for a summary of the latest research in the area of sports nutrition and it provides practical recommendations for the sports professional working with athletes. The greatest strength of this book lies in the one or two case studies that accompany almost every chapter." (Kristine N Clark, MS, RCEP, @Doody's Review Service)
