This had to be one of the most obsessively boring and nauseatingly detailed books I have ever read. This text was required for a 200-level cellular biology class, and I don't see how anyone could comprehend its contents. The book needs to be re-written for a college student who is trying to understand the subject matter, not for someone who knows DNA replication in their sleep. No textbook should be over 800 pages long, especially if you can drag out a topic for 50+ pages.

This book made an honest attempt to be "accessible" to the student, but ended up speaking in biology jargon that all too often left me scatching my head. I got lost in the long paragraphs and technical names (proper chemical/physiological names were often used but never defined). I think this book could be condensed to include only the most important concepts in cellular and molecular biology, or that it just should not be used for an introductory, freshman-level course. It goes into too much detail and ends up leaving most of us in the dust. The publishers do earn points, however, for the nice pictures in the book. Good for you!
