The book is very easy to read, enjoyable; isn't dry at all. There are self-check-questions at the end of each chapter. The figures are high quality and illustrative.

The only problem is, that at the beginning of the book, the atomic formulas of the nucletid bases are quite full with mistakes.

I liked this book. It was generic and easy to read. I had already learned much of the information from other text books. It was quick and easy to read.
