Dr. Garb, a pharmacologist, has written a brief, informative book that is "patient-centered" rather than "food-centered." It contains a section on the principles of nutrition, another on therapeutic diets of all sorts, and one of quick reference tables of the composition of foods. It is a fine reference for nurses and students or for anyone lecturing to such groups.
