This is the best semipopular book on food and nutrition the reviewer has yet seen. The writers are obviously experts and have a large backlog of solid scientific information to draw on. They write well and make their points with a quiet emphasis which is sufficiently convincing. The flamboyant or evangelistic style used by so many propagandists of nutrition is conspicuously absent. The theoretic part of the subject is covered in such a way as to be intelligible to the average educated reader, and the practical discussion of food and of menus is satisfactory. The book does credit to the university press which produced it.
