The main text has large type; charts, bibliography and index are small type. This how-to book about vitamins has a question-and-answer format with basic information as well as suggestions about supplements based on special needs. Charts do not have complete nutrition listings; instead, they focus on what foods to eat to get a certain vitamin, or amounts of a single ingredient such as sugar, salt, or caffeine in a food. This book has an unusual numbering system which makes it easy to confuse page numbers and topic numbers... you have to go to the first page of the chapter you want, then flip through the pages to get to the topic number that you want to read.
