Loss of appetite is an all too frequentcomplication for people suffering from serious illness. Theassociated weight loss adds further physical and emotional stress onboth patient and family alike. It is this integral aspect of carethat James Haller has made the core of his new book, "What to EatWhen You Don't Feel Like Eating."

The author is a masterchef, as well as an author of three other cookbooks. He has spentover 12 years interacting with cancer patients and other patients withlife-threatening illnesses. His realization that people with seriousillness need to eat differently is an important and yet oftenoverlooked aspect of patient care, that he approaches in a mostcompassionate and genuine manner.

The book itself approaches thenutritional value of various foods and moves on to grouping thesefoods by colors to provide a simple understanding of the nutritionalaspects. Moreover, he emphasizes the importance of taste and flavor,as well as the enjoyment in food preparation.

In short, JamesHaller mixes a blend of ingenuity and compassion with nutrition andart to tackle a most vital aspect of patient treatment and care. Whatresults is more than a mere cookbook for the preparation of foods; itis a cookbook on the art of caring.
