Review:

The Processes of Life is an excellent introduction to molecular biology and, at only $40, a tremendous value. By deconstructing an exceedingly complicated body of information into a set of core principles, Hunter provides the reader with a framework for grasping the strengths and challenges of modern biology...this book's clarity and frankness make it an invaluable resource for any person, from any profession, seeking an introduction to molecular biology.--Andrea L. Suárez, PhD and Robert P. Dellavalle, MD, PhD, MSPH Journal of the American Medical Association

About the Author:
