Reviews

"This is a formidable book, exactly what every interested reader needs to know about human nutrition. Perfect size, perfect depth and perfect presentation".

--Daniele Del Rio, PhD, Associate Professor of Human Nutrition at the University of Parma, Italy

"I refer to this book often because it has specific details that I have not found in other biochemistry or nutrition textbooks."

--Marilyn Edwards, PhD, RD, Professor of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition at the University of Texas, Houston, USA

"This is a comprehensive and well-referenced textbook that integrates nutrition and metabolism...a valuable resource for biochemistry educators in the healthcare professions."

--Richard Sabina, PhD, Professor in the Department of Biomedical Sciences, Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine, Michigan, USA

"This edition of Nutrient Metabolism is a key resource for researchers and those wishing to learn or update their knowledge of nutrient metabolism."
