Meet the Author

For the past two decades, Cecie Starr has been known as one of the best-selling biology textbook authors. Her texts, appreciated for their clarity in both the written word and the visual representation of biological concepts, include multiple editions of Biology: the Unity and Diversity of Life, Biology: Concepts and Applications, and Biology today and Tomorrow. Her original dream was to become an architect. Instead of building houses, she now builds, with care and attention to detail, incredible texts based on this philosophy: "I invite students into a chapter through an intriguing story. Once inside, they get the great windows that biologists construct on the world of life. Biology is not just another house. It is a conceptual mansion. I hope to do it justice."

    I found the book easy to follow (high school senior), but it lacked in depth detail of particular topics.

    very difficult book, how can high schoolers understand this

    I think I know sufficient high school chemistry and biochemistry being over 25 years in the business of biology physiology and medicine. I got in contact with this book, when my daughter in 9th grade had to read about molecules. This chapter is totally confusing with alkanes without explaining alcanes, sugars without explaining what a sugar is, polysugars without discerning why they are different, polyalcohols withot explaining what an alcohol is, fatty acids and then suddenly sex hormones and the casual existence of the double helix. This is the most confusing book I ever held in my hands. This book is neither useful as base line text nor to review specific biologic functions down to the molecular level. I would consider this at most as waste of paper.

    Informative and Interesting- But Expensive

    Even though the paperback version was available 6-7 months earlier, all my school's bookstore had was hardcovers. The book is good and uses lots of examples and pictures. 100 bucks or 26 bucks? That is the question.
