Editorial Reviews

3 Stars from Doody
E-Streams
An excellent example of designing a textbook for undergraduates and non-biology majors. It is clear, well illustrated, conversational in tone and enjoyable to read and browse through.
October 2004
The Quarterly Review of Biology
This book fills a critical niche in the pedagogical process of introducing cell biology and does an excellent job in reaching its objective.
December 2004, volume 79
CBE-Life Sciences Education
College and university professors who have used the previous editions of ECB will be pleased with the new edition. The format and organization are retained but have been infused with fresh images and updated material. It's as if a trusted old friend has come back from an extended vacation with a bright new look and a refreshed attitude. The reader is at once comfortable with and excited by the changes. New users of the textbook will find it accessible and approachable at the professorial and student levels . . . .I highly recommend it to all CBE-Life Sciences Education readers who are also classroom educators.
