Reviews of the First Edition:
"The authors have a very good understanding of what many students find difficult and have addressed these issues both in the text and with questions and exercises. ...a good active learning text for students."
Science Education Newsletter
"...a fresh and lively approach to biological science...will stretch the most able, as well as support the average, student."
"The text is easy to read and should prove accessible to the most reluctant readers. The authors have overcome the problem of teaching students who are unfamiliar with the basic concepts."
Times Educational Supplement
Review of First Edition:
"It is beautifully illustrated, and contains many eye-catching photographs and large, colourful diagrams. The explanations are clear and interesting, often interspersed with a touch of dry humour. …a readable and enjoyable text.
This book will stimulate able students to pursue topics further, and will provide an excellent framework of understanding for those of more limited abilities."
