Library Journal Review

This is not just another vitamin and mineral guide; it is a comprehensive volume that also describes and evaluates acids, lipids and their derivatives, herbs, and other nutritional supplements on which there is little information for laypersons. Well organized and logically arranged, the book is divided into three parts. There is a brief introduction to ``micronutrition'' (the study of the health-giving components of food); an extensive encyclopedic section that provides a complete analysis of 160 supplements; and a listing of specific supplement formulas recommended for different needs. Hendler's information is objective and well documented; his book is similar to but more thorough than Dominick Bosco's The People's Guide to Vitamins and Minerals (LJ 6/15/80; 1989. rev. ed.). Hendler is the author of The Oxygen Breakthrough (LJ 4/15/89). His latest book is essential for all public libraries.--Linda Chopra, Cleveland Heights-University Heights P.L., Ohio (c) Copyright 2010.
