“Communicating Nutrition: The Authoritative Guide comprehensively and succinctly lays out the essential skills needed by dietitians to successfully communicate with their audiences. The chapters provide vivid real-life examples and are easy, engaging, and entertaining to read. What I love most is that the book is written by dietitians for dietitians. I thoroughly enjoyed teaching with the pilot and would recommend it as a must-read. Regardless of whether you're a dietetics student or a seasoned dietitian, it will serve as a useful learning resource and/or valuable refresher as you seek to become a more effective nutrition communicator.”

Feedback from students:
"I loved the personal feel the book brought to learning. There were personal stories and tips that stood out to me, especially the chapters on food photography, video communication, and demonstrations."
"Overall I think nutrition communication is a cool topic that we have not been exposed to much. We tend to focus on the science side of nutrition rather than how our knowledge reaches people."
"Very interesting and informative information. As someone who has worked a lot with communication, I still learned a lot of new information!"
