Review:

Molecules and Medicine is a fascinating introduction to the convergence of chemistry and physiology, and to the emergence of the science of molecular medicine. ( The Nucleus, January 2010)

"Molecules and Medicine is extremely well organized and integrates history, chemistry, biology, and pharmacology of drug development seamlessly." (The Quarterly Review of Biology, September 2008)

" I find this to be a useful book for somemone teaching a biochemistry class.  Use of examples and information from Molecules and Medicine should make material in lectures seem more relevant to students and assist motivation for learning." (Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, May/June 2008)

"This is a treasure trove of information about molecules as medicines." (Education in Chemistry, May 2008)

"Molecules and Medicine is an engaging book that takes the reader into the world of small molecule clinical therapeutics and how they are discovered and used to improve health." (CHOICE, March 2008)

" numerous colorful illustrations that help to explain the various topics covered make it easy and interesting reading." (ChemBioChem, March 2008)
