Reviewer’s Summary This textbook is recommended as a supplementary text for Community College health and nutrition classes, and is appropriate for Health Science majors. This book provides a thorough introduction to proteins. The material is organized into seven easy-to-read chapters. The chapter content is well supported by figures and many excellent critical thinking activities. Important terms are explained clearly, and the author does a good job of providing understandable explanations for challenging concepts. Students will benefit from having a basic knowledge of chemistry fundamentals before using this book. Some content may need to be adapted for use in the United States (it uses British English spellings for technical terms.)
