When this book first appeared, in 1931, it became immediately popular with readers who wanted accurate information about foods and nutrition written in an interesting and nontechnical style. The present edition preserves these attributes while bringing the information down to date. The author writes authoritatively about nutrition and health in terms which the intelligent man or woman can understand.
