Review quote

"@from:Praise for the Second Edition The authoritative volume in the field of cell physiology and certainly one of the most current sources of comprehensive information available. --CHOICE ...a core textbook in cell physiology... The need for such a book is well justified and it fulfills its objectives admirably. It is especially strong on the subjects of signal transduction, membrane biology, ion channels, and neuronal and muscle cell physiology... It is a solid textbook in its field.... --DOODY'S PUBLISHING REVIEWS Cell Physiology Source Book 2e will be useful for advanced undergraduate and graduate students studying cell physiology, cell biophysics, electrophysiology, and biological scientists in many fields. The book is particularly suitable for introducing cell physiology to students with training in the physical sciences and for introducing cell biophysics to students with backgrounds in biology. --BIOPHYSICAL JOURNAL
