From the Back Cover

Praise for this book:

Books of this format are rare. Even more so are concise books of this caliber that cover such a wide array of biochemistry-related topics. This is the perfect book for students on the go, or physicians in need of a brief refresher. It provides sufficient Information in its summaries and rich illustrations to gain a basic understanding of any topic it covers. The updated edition is certainly worthwhile as additional areas such as blood clotting and the biochemistry of fatty tissues are now covered. -- Doody Enterprises, Inc.

Providing a powerful visual overview of the entire spectrum of human biochemistry, the third edition of the popular Color Atlas of Biochemistry is an ideal reference and study aid. It utilizes the signature Flexibook format, consisting of double-page spreads with clear explanatory text on the left-hand page and exquisitely detailed full-color graphics on the right. These bite-sized learning capsules ensure that your review of any given topic is quick, efficient, and comprehensive, allowing you to target the exact information you need for classroom and exam success.

New features of this bestselling review book:

  • Increased focus on pathobiochemical aspects and clinical correlations, especially useful for exam preparation in the clinical sciences
  • New and expanded sections on the immune and digestive systems, motor proteins, transport processes, blood clotting and fibrinolysis, biochemistry of fatty tissue, metabolic integration, neurotransmitters and their receptors, signal transduction, and much more!
  • Symbols for atoms, biomolecules, coenzymes, biochemical processes, and chemical reactions are color-coded to promote quick comprehension
  • Computer graphics that provide simulated 3D representations of important molecules, making complex subject matter tangible
  • Convenient color thumb index that guides you quickly through the book

This superb didactic atlas has been used by medical and health science students worldwide since its first publication in German in 1994 and has since been translated into fifteen languages. Its unrivalled illustrations, concise text, and focused presentation all combine to create an excellent, high-yield study guide.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By F. Hamilton on September 16, 2008
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I don't understand why so many science texts are overwrought and redundant. Worst of all, you end up paying premium prices for poor content, circuitous writing, and an inefficient organization of topics. The real coup de grace comes about when instructors recommend student companion texts with a sly wink and a nudge.

Fortunately, resources like the 'Color Atlas of Biochemistry' are as affordable as they are efficient and useful. It will prove to be an invaluable reference, study aid, and a more adequate companion text than those offered by the more popular publishers.

Far be it from me to suggest that you hurt your instructor's coffers by using this book as a primary source, but it would certainly be a great addition to your library.

Format: Paperback
I wish I had this book when I started my studies. It makes an excellent companion for reading with Voet & Voet. The illustrations are superb, worth memorizing, and supplement the excellent illustrations in Voet. Very easy to follow. The overview diagrams bring a great deal of information together visually.

Concise and integrated, this review offers the reader insight into the compexity of biochemistry while maintaining readability. Having text to one side and images on the other helps reinforce and connect the concepts.
