I’d give this book a 3 star rating. The informational aspects are very good. However, the charts leave out some important information, like fat grams and carbohydrate grams. Though you can do the calculations yourself, it’d be a better resource if you didn’t have to do the math. I would recommend reading the text of this book while you’re enjoying a cup of tea at Barnes & Noble, then stick it back on the shelf. If you’re only interested in counting calories, it’s a good pocket guide, small enough to fit in your handbag.
