Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Max E. Rafelson, PhD (Rush Medical College of Rush University)
Description: This book presents an assessment of the current knowledge in a number of areas of biophysics and biomolecular structure.
Purpose: The primary purpose is to provide authoritative reviews for biomedical scientists active in these areas.
Audience: Although this book is directed primarily at well-informed biomedical scientists and not at the novice, it should also be useful for those individuals seeking some understanding beyond their own immediate research interests.
Features: The illustrations in black-and-white are of good quality and of sufficient number and are appropriate for the purposes of the book. The references are pertinent and current for all chapters within the framework of the production schedule. The individual chapters are not listed in the table of contents by successive page numbers, but as a member of one of four categories: structural principles, structure and function, dynamics, and emerging techniques. Although somewhat unusual, this may enable a reader to identify related topics more easily.
Assessment: This book is another outstanding production in the various Annual Review series that are essential for scientists concerned directly with the areas considered and of value for those scientists who may be only tangentially involved. The writing is good and concise; the science is excellent with no errors apparent to me.
