Praise for VITAMANIA

 "Absorbing and meticulously researched." —The New York Times

"Engaging . . . lively . . . a vigorous retelling." —The Wall Street Journal

"If you need vitamins to survive [you do], you should read this book."—Scientific American

"[A] deeply satisfying masterpiece of nutrition science writing."—Network Health Dietitians Magazine (British)

 "[A] hidden, many-faceted, and urgent story... a commanding, meticulously documented, and riling exposé rich in dramatic and absurd science and advertising history, lively profiles, and intrepid, eyebrow-raising fieldwork."—Booklist (Starred)

 "This lively investigational work from journalist Price reveals how little we know about vitamins -- both how much we need or how they work -- and how our vitamin obsession is actually making us less healthy."—Publishers Weekly (Starred)

 “Riveting. . . . [Price’s] investigation, full of scurvy-ridden sailors, questionable nutritional supplements and solid science, is both entertaining and enlightening.” —Discover magazine
