Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book contains everything you want to know and more about cells. Each section covers a topic by beginning with the basic molecules and background principles and then continuing up to how these give full physiological function.
It is well designed because it contains lots of detail on each subject without drowning out key information for understanding. There are separate boxes on most pages, containing key principles and helpful summary tables alongside many excellent diagrams and research figures. It has been updated from the first edition with the inclusion of the latest research findings and there has also been an effort made to reduce jargon. I would recommend this book for a person wanting to conduct research who needs solid baseline knowledge of cell biology."
Medical Student, Leicester Medical School, UK

From the Author

This beautifully illustrated and sophisticated molecular cell biology text is appropriate for undergraduates, graduate students and medical students. Using a concise style, the book presents a comprehensive, up to date account of how macromolecular interactions explain cellular structure and function. Clinical examples depict how basic cell biology explains human disease. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Any biology student or aficionado will find that this book is one of his or her most valuable guides and resources. The text is clearly-written and very up-to-date, and the rich illustrations, diagrams, and charts that accompany it are truly second-to-none. Even if you don't need it for a class, find a copy and browse - chances are you'll like it enough to consider buying it for your own reference.

I find this book to be an excellent reference for graduate students - I purchase a copy for all my grad students. It is particularly good for serious researchers coming in from other fields who need a clear, detailed, comprehensive crash course in cell biology. It is very up to date and covers material at the level necessary for biomedical researchers and students. I hope they do a 3rd edition.

For 2 decades I teached Cell Biology. I used Cell Biology's Alberts and Coleagues Book as most important reference book to my Medicine Students. Pollard&Earnshaw's Cell Biology is much complete as Alberts'one; however, it is more complete, and it guide more easy to Medical formation questions. I am very glad to know Pollard&Earnshaw's book and share the content to my students, and to provide better discussions.

I needed this book for a class and was excited to get my very first textbook in ebook form, so kudos to them on that since most of my textbooks don't come in e-form, ever. It's cheaper and more convenient than lugging around a giant book. I do have to say I missed the physical form in some cases as the search engine for words was very very slow (though that's probably my Kindle's deal and has nothing to do with the book itself). I studied with a friend who had the physical copy and it's just so easy and familiar flipping through the physical copy rather than trying to search through the eBook, but perhaps that's also an issue of practice. These are things to consider if you're trying to decide between the physical copy or the ecopy. Either way, I liked how it was organized where you could view the figures and pictures separate from the text in a way that made sense. The book itself has great content and describes things very well. I'm glad I had it for cell physiology! I wish the table of contents was a little easier to navigate, though - it's a useful function because you can click on the desired chapter, but there's so many chapters that it was kind of a pain to search through it. I'm sure they could make it a little easier to look through.

I was actually surprised at how good this textbook was. I knew the reviews for it online were good, but I just didn't expect to find it so helpful, and readable! The pictures, and even the wording in the text was really helpful, and I think it was a fantastic compliment to my cell bio class.

This book is well-written about DNA, lipid, mitosis, work and rest potential, protein pumps,... which i am concerning with. It has very illustrative figures, too.
