This book is very insightful and not hard to read. I have had many in the past you need a medical dictionary along with a regular dictionary to get through. This book flows very well and is a book I will never get rid of as I plan on using it to look back on over and over again.
This book was delivered quickly and I am very happy about the price. I purchased it for a class I was required to take for graduation from undergraduate and the price was so much better at Amazon. The book was in good condition when I received it and certainly better condition than many books at the college bookstores. Summary: I didn’t particularly love the book but I had to have it and it was a great price, in good condition, and was delivered to my home promptly.
Great book, lots of good information however, I am a dietetics major and enjoy reading this information. Good price, good buy.
