About the Survival Cookbooks
This great series of books is produced by the Australian Institute of Sport with the help of AIS athletes. They were developed by the team of sport dietitians at the AIS, evolving out of the cooking classes which the Institute has been running with its athletes for many years. It is aimed at athletes and anyone interested in maintaining a healthy diet in a busy lifestyle. Recipes are accompanied by a nutritional analysis, easy cooking hints and a selection of tips from the athletes themselves. The other books in the survival series: Survival for the Fittest, Survival For The Active Family and Survival from the fittest.
