This book is terrible. I hope you don't have to use it. The wording is very hard to understand and unclear, and I am a well-read honors student. The graphics interrupt the paragraphs such that sometimes you dont even realize there is text on a page because its a tiny one inch block of text amid a page full of huge scattered graphics. My Bio2 class uses a different text book. Usually I would be upset because I had to buy another one instead of using the same one, but I'm still glad to be rid of this book.Was this review helpful?

An undergraduate, freshman level biology class I took used this as its textbook. It is thorough and detailed, packed with information on a broad range of biological topics, written in a highly accessible manner that requires no special training to understand. It covers such topics as the cell, heredity, evolution, plants, animals, and ecology. It's not quite as well written as the finest textbooks I've read, such as Alberts' Molecular Biology of the Cell or Kandel's Principles of Neural Science, but it's well written nonetheless. Anyone interested in the subject of biology should give this a read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
