Review Text

"This textbook should come with a warning: Any serious student, teacher or scientist interested in biology who begins to read it, will not be able to close it for hours and perhaps days. It is a text they will cherish for years to come.

Why is this book exceptional? The answer is that a single scientist has somehow managed to integrate the vast amount of data being generated about human biochemistry and biology into a fascinating story that has an elegance and a beauty rarely if ever seen before." --Amazon
