Library Journal Review

Here's yet another guide to vitamins and minerals in an already overcrowded field. Although the individual entries for these vital nutrients contain clear, concise information, the introductory essays on specific groups of people and their special nutritional needs and the final section on absorption are too general to be of much use and don't fit in with the guide format of the book. Nevertheless, the vitamin and mineral entries are carefully organized and include key data on the current advances in nutritional research, as well as basic information on how these nutrients affect the body, their best dietary sources, those at greatest risk for deficiency, and sensible use of supplements. Overall, this book is similar to but not as comprehensive as Dominick Bosco's The People's Guide to Vitamins and Minerals from A to Zinc (Contemporary Bks., 1989. rev. ed.)-- Linda Chopra, Cleveland Heights P.L., Ohio (c) Copyright 2010.
