This little book, written by seasoned authorities in the field, gives in a small space a great amount of information about food and vitamins. After discussing the needs of the normal diet, the authors present interesting chapters on the relation of diet to the teeth, to pregnancy and the like. The reviewer has only one minor criticism: At times the discussion is a little too deep for the average layman.
