"The authors have combined scientific findings, clinical judgement and common sense, to produce a reference work of great importance not only to clinicians but also to other health care disciplines and to managers."

"This is not just another book, it is unique masterly systematic review of systematic reviews and meta-analysis, blessed by the authority and much clinical expertise and sense of the authors."
Mario E Camilo, University Lisbon, Portugal Clinical Nutrition (2003) 22(6)
"It is an impressive effort to collect, summarize and analyse the available literature in the field. This book is a useful addition to the available literature for a wide range of professionals working with nutritional support, but also for students and researchers, especially when dealing with nutrition intervention trials."
Lars-Ake Persson, Scandinavian Journal of Nutrition 2003, 47(4)
"This is a useful reference book and should be available to all those involved in the management of patients suffering from nutritional depletion. The book would be an ideal addition to the resources of nutrition support teams to underpin clinical decision and to act as basis for undertaking clinical research. It provides a valuable source of information for those undertaking studies in clinical nutrition at both under- and post-graduate level. The authors are to be congratulated for such a meticulous and timely review of this subject."
Janet P Baxter, Journal Human Nutrition & Dietetics, 16
"The book presents a huge amount of information in a single cohesive style...It is the completeness of the work that makes it outstanding."
