Overview

This pioneering book combines research-focused storytelling with the Socratic method to get students to think like practicing scientists. Each page of the book is designed in the spirit of active learning, asking students to apply critical thinking skills as they learn key concepts. Accounts of real researchers designing and analyzing real experiments, carefully punctuated by thoughtful questions and exercises, train introductory students in the process of DOING biology.

This is the best biology book I have ever seen or read. The tutorial CD that accompanies the book is awesome! Even the narrater sounds professional as opposed to other CD narrators that sound like the building janitor Highschool dropout.
