Format: Hardcover
The author of this book clearly knows his stuff. But it reads like he's giving a monolog during the third day of a crack binge. It is so disorganized, I find myself having to read passages four or five times in order to establish a conceptual framework for the material being discussed. Look, I understand that genetics is an emerging science and that the field and sub-fields have a lot of big holes that are actively being filled in. But it is still possible to present the material in a straightforward and systematized fashion. Ugh... My advice to anyone who gets stuck with this book is to scan each section first, then read through one or two subheadings before you actually start reading a subheading critically and taking notes. And if your instructor requires you to know about the experiments that are discussed, skip those and go back to them later because they don't actually help you understand the other material. Then cross-reference any unclear points from another textbook, or the interweb.

Best selling genetics textbook for a reason. This made genetics an easy A for me. It takes the scary out of what many consider a difficult (undergrad) biology course. He leaves a lot of holes (that only an advanced genetics student would notice) but this text is meant for intro type genetics courses (still 4xx/4xxx level) not advanced genetics or human genetics. If you like Brooker's Biology textbook you'll enjoy this. Not sure why one reviewer thought it was poorly written/organized. Are you sure you are referring to his 4th edition? First 3 editions maybe, but not this one.

This book is up to the standards of most college textbooks out there. That said, it is packed with good information and graphical figures but never a joy to read.

This is a good introductory genetics book. It covers all the basic of the subject areas well. I had this book for a genetics class and found the book accessible.

This is the e book that will make me buy more e textbooks down the road. You can easily search for terms, how ofteh they come up, how they are relevant to later and prior material, highlight, and share notes with others.

The Amazon e book format is great . The book itself does a great job on explaining material with good diagrams as well.

Also look at McGraw Hills website for free quizes

Book was delivered within two days, which I needed it right away. Book is in great condition and I intend on keeping it that way so others will be just as satisfied. Won't rent books any other way now

A great textbook, the material is easy to understand and clearly explained. I plan on reading the chapters that were not covered in class just because the material was presented so well.
