Recenzii

"It is hard to find a textbook that gives a better basis for the understanding of Human metabolism and nutrition, that is so well designed and actually quite fun to read as this one. This book is my first choice for a textbook for my medical students and for nursing school too. It is well suited for any kind of studies of metabolism at a higher level because of its ease at explaining the basics and the frameworks needed for the understanding of metabolism. It is the first book I give to my doctorial students when they need to freshen up their knowledge and the basics in metabolism when starting research in clinical nutrition and metabolism...if anyone is looking for the most interesting and fun book to read as an in depth introduction to human metabolism and nutrition, this is it!" (Clinical Nutrition, December 2010)
