This text describes the four major methods of nutritional assessment (dietary, anthropometric, biometric, and clinical) in an understandable and contemporary way. It thoroughly covers assessment of the hospitalized individual, but also serves as an invaluable resource to the nutrition professional working in such areas as public health and community nutrition, corporate health, and sports medicine.

I have used this book more than any other text during my professional and teaching career. It’s not easy to read, but it has all the pertinent info, charts, and tools needed to perform a thorough assessment.
The book arrived on time like promised and the packaging was fine. What I had a problem with was the fact that it was a “new” book but it was all scratched and dirty. I’m very disappointed because I just recently purchased a book that was in “like new” condition for about a 1/3 of what I paid for this book and that one was in better condition (different seller, different book) than the book that I just received. I don’t know that I would buy from this seller again. I may be really picky but in my opinion it was too much for the quality that was received.
