Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Rahmat M. Talukder, PhD, RPh (West Coast University School of Pharmacy)
Description: This well-organized textbook concisely presents the fundamentals of biochemistry at a level appropriate for pharmacy students. At the end of each chapter, review questions help readers reflect on what they've learned.
Purpose: An understanding of the fundamentals of biochemical processes is essential for pharmacy students to understand biopharmaceutics, medicinal chemistry, and other related subjects in the pharmacy curriculum.
Audience: Although it is intended for pharmacy students, the book would be useful to anyone interested in learning the basics of biochemistry.
Features: The book is well organized into 16 chapters that cover the relevant topics in organic and physical chemistry, enzyme and enzyme kinetics, metabolism, DNA replication and repair, and protein synthesis. Though concise, the information is presented in an easy to follow style with sufficient illustrations. Enzymology and metabolism are well covered. Some chapters have clinical application boxes, which are helpful in understanding how basic science knowledge is applied in clinical science. The glossary of key terms is also helpful. Suggested additions would be a separate chapter on proteomics and genomics and case studies at the end of some of the chapters.
Assessment: Complex issues in biochemistry are presented concisely at an appropriate level with sufficient illustrations, making this a useful book for pharmacy students. There are a number of world-class biochemistry textbooks, such as Lehninger Principles of Biochemistry, 5th edition, Nelson and Cox (W. H. Freeman, 2008), and Harper's Illustrated Biochemistry, 28th edition, Murray et al. (McGraw-Hill, 2009), but those are for students intending to pursue a degree in biochemistry. Overall this is a well-organized and easy to follow textbook for pharmacy students.
