Review:

"The greatest strengths of this text are its masterful conversational style and clarity of expression at the level of the sentence. This makes for a good read."

"The use of modern examples and interesting anecdotes [are strengths]. For instance, the chapter opening discussing blowfish poison [Ch 3] was a good ice-breaker. The example about NeuroAIDS made the material timely/relevant."
