A fantastic, clearly written, well informed book written by two 'greats' in the area of sports nutrition. If you are studying nutrition or metabolism as part of a sport science or applied nutrition degree then this book should be your first choice and is one of the few which is worth the investment.

The book is very good, I used a lot of this book during my degree in sports coaching. Its more insightful than just your bog standard nutrition book as it develops more of the understanding of what nutrition can do for specific elements of performance.
