Review:

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."Education Review "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
