2.0 out of 5 stars Too much information
For the average reader there is too much information here. The author tries to cover every aspect (recipes etc), over 1000 pages. 90% of this information could be in an appendix with the useful bits up front. Would have been much better if it were more concise and focussed,

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive comprehensive nutrition reference, 8 July 1999
By A Customer
For those looking for the omnibus, cover-all reference book on nutrition, this is it. It is a thoroughly comprehensive examination of nutrition from just about every possible facet. Dr. Haas incorporates most of the more modern and alternative thinking on nutrition, even going so far as to examine environmental and spiritual issues, while avoiding the extreme, faddish ideas either of the medical establishment or the alternative fringe. He really does seem to have taken the time to weigh the value of studies done in both the mainstream and alternative research communities and brought together the clear, probable truths from both camps. And by the same token, he provides warnings against the doubtful claims of both sides.
This is not a book, however, for those looking for a quick, capsule synopsis of a dietary approach. Those people might be better served with Patrick Holford's "Optimum Nutrition Bible" which provides much of the same information in a condensed form. Rather this book is ideal for those looking to make an informed decision based on their own choices.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent reference book., 18 Feb. 1999
By A Customer
This book is absolutely one of the best nutrition books I have ever read. It is thorough and offers a great deal of information on vitamins, minerals, herbs, proper nutrition, various detox diets, why and what type of water should be consumed and much more. A must for anyone who wishes to study holistic nutrition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best, most comprehensive nutrition summary I've come across., 20 July 1999
By A Customer
Not only does this summary provide a comprehensive review of traditional nutrition, it also provides information on less traditional supplements and discussion of current nutritional issues. I highly recommend this book for both lay people and professional nutritionists.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is very thorough and interesting!, 23 May 1999
By A Customer
I am glad to see that someone is telling the public the dangers of synthetic, processed foods. We all need to get back to the basic when it comes to nutrition. Elson Haas does a masterful job of explaning in detail everything you need to know about nutrition. The only nutrition book you will ever need.
