Review quote

Praise for the First Edition "Before I was asked to review this book, I had heard very favorable comments from a colleague who was using it to supplement the material he was presenting in a first year biochemistry class in medical school. After having had a chance to review the book myself, I agree with his comments and highly recommend it as a supplementary text in biochemistry or pathophysiology courses."--American Journal of Pharmaceutical Educationshow more
