Review quote

From the reviews: "This high quality book can be read and understood by many different people in the health professions and those who are very interested in their own supplementation strategies. This book will be very useful to me in my profession as I encounter questions regarding nutritional supplements on a daily basis. It teaches readers how to self-educate and how to identify false and misleading claims, something I have not seen in any other books. It is also better than others in the field because it does not go into such depth that readers get lost, but it does provide more detail than just the basics of nutritional supplements. This book can complement many nutritional strategies and many other sports nutrition books and should be in the library of any health professionals who work with the active population." (Allison Maurer, MS, RD, CSSD, CSCS, University of Tennessee at Knoxville) "This book provides detailed analysis of nutritional supplementation, supported by scientific research regarding sports and exercise performance. ... Summing Up: Optional. Upper-level undergraduates through faculty/researchers." (A. H. Goldfarb, Choice, Vol. 46 (8), April, 2009) "Nutritional Supplements in Sports and Exercise begins by discussing legal and psychological aspects of sports supplements, followed by chapters on the nutrient and hydration needs of athletes and those engaged in regular exercise. ... All the chapters are written in an easily understood style that requires no science background or technical expertise. ... particularly useful for personal trainers, coaches and anyone who wants to know the scientific details related to sports nutrition ... ." (Jerry Brainum, Iron Man Magazine, July, 2009) "The book sets forth a thorough review of the available evidence for or against dietary supplementation-from micronutrients to macronutrients and from individual to combinational dietary supplement regimes-summarizing the available evidence in well-referenced chapters. ... Nutritional Supplements in Sports and Exercise is an important bookshelf reference for clinicians who work with athletes or physically active individuals. ... this book provides sufficient guidance regarding overall eating recommendations during physical activity to make it worth the purchase." (Cynthia A. Thomson, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 303 (18), 2010)show more
