For many years, there has been a great need for a single book on minerals covering both animals and humans. Dr. McDowell has done a magnificent job of reviewing the mineral literature and condensing it into one textbook... McDowell's book is of considerable value to all those concerned with animal and human nutrition... The author is to be congratulated on having made a good contribution regarding minerals in nutrition. --ANIMAL FEED AND TECHNOLOGY
