Save money, look for an older edition

By

I have compared this edition side by side with the 4th edition, and the only update my classmates and I found is the addition of "monk fruit" under alternative sweeteners. Otherwise the paragraphs and charts/graphs are verbatim, with some minimal rearranging. As of now, you can rent the older edition for less than half, so save some money and consider an older edition. Overall, the book is nothing exciting. All black and white photographs except for a few pages in the centerfold. The text itself is boring and repetitive, but it was required for my course.
