Read more excerpts from the review:
"[It] is intended for students in nutrition and all allied health sciences, as well as practitioners who wish to learn more about nutrition in older adults. The editors and chapter authors are all credible authorities in their fields.
Chapters are easy to read, colorful, and filled with textboxes, tables, and figures highlighting key information. Chapters also present key definitions along the margins, and most include case studies. With its judicious use of color, tables, textboxes, and white space, the book makes it easy to read and review the important information for each topic.
Having the book in print and online is helpful, since individual chapters can be downloaded to an e-reader, eliminating the need to carry around the whole book.
This is a valuable resource for practicing healthcare professionals, but it is also useful for students learning key information about the nutrition needs of older adults. This edition is updated with all the new research and recommendations for this population.
