A favorite for more than three decades among nursing and allied health instructors and students, "Williams' Essentials of Nutrition & Diet Therapy" provides focused nutrition coverage in an easy-to-read style presented in an attractive and colorful layout. Formerly known as "Essentials of Nutrition & Diet Therapy", the ninth edition strives to both improve and enhance the book's reputation for solid core nutrition content, ensuring that the most up-to-date information and topics in this ever-changing field are addressed throughout. Wellness and health promotion are stressed, as are global nutrition issues and the ever-increasing recognition of the vital roles that culture and religion play in everyday dietary patterns, practices, and overall health.
