This textbook is great in that it clearly defines every idea presented and then continues to reinforce it throughout the whole text with many examples, pictures, and redefining periodically. The chapters on genes, DNA, and cell replication were a looming threat to my class which had very little science background. The most complex mRNA and tRNA stuff is so simplified in this book, you can actually understand how it happens and WHY!
