    ”This is an interesting and readable minitext that achieves its goal of being directed to both laypersons and neophyte academics, although its usefulness to scientists already in the field ..would be most uniquely valuable to early students of the discipline, be they informed laypersons or students planning to enter disciplines related to nutrition and health.”
