Editorial Reviews

Review

"This volume inspires. It certainly will be much appreciated by cell biologists all over the world." (Quarterly Review of Biology, March 2009)

"Scheffler of California San Diego uses crisp, clear writing style and employs a broad perspective of current research and understanding of mitochondria." (CHOICE, April 2008)

From the Back Cover

Praise for the First Edition

"Very valuable."
Journal of the American Aging Association

"Remarkably comprehensive yet concise and contains something for everyone . . . a wide range of 'Cell Biologists' will find this book valuable."
Cell Biology International

"A broadly conceived and lively account of mitochondrial biology and biochemistry . . . [written] with such clarity and spark, and in such an organized and complete manner."
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education

This book is the eagerly awaited Second Edition of the bestselling book widely acknowledged as the first modern, truly comprehensive work on mitochondria.

Mitochondria, Second Edition brings readers up to date on the many significant findings that have occurred since the book was first published nearly a decade ago. As in that seminal first edition, this Second Edition tackles the biochemistry, genetics, and pathology of mitochondria in different organisms. The growth of the subject has required more emphasis on mammalian mitochondria, but fundamental new insights from other organisms are also included. The new edition provides thorough updates of all the literature concerning this vital organelle, its functions, ongoing research surrounding it, and its importance vis-à-vis a broad range of issues in cellular and molecular biology. Mitochondria, Second Edition includes detailed descriptions of current and developing technologies involved in mitochondrial research and discovery, and highlights subjects that are growing, such as the use of proteomics.

Complete with black-and-white drawings and photographs, Mitochondria, Second Edition is an invaluable resource for all geneticists, biologists, and educators in the life sciences. It is also of interest to advanced students in genetics and molecular biology.

One person in my lab said: "How can one scientist know so much about mitochondria?"
Readable for the college/graduate/first year medical student. A superb mid-level introduction. Could have slightly more biophysical treatment of protonmotive forces/membrane potential. All in all, the book chosen for graduate students entering the lab.

I admire the concept of one person trying to cover such a comprehensive subject and there is a lot of good information contained in this book, but it is very difficult to read. You have to go back again and again to try and figure out what he is trying to say. Reminded me of some of my poor quality books in graduate school.

I am not making this comment lightly, I know how difficult good scientific writing is. I wish more people would attempt books like this.

Fascinating subject!

As a non specialist I am very interested in cell biology and am especially interested in the Mitochondria as per its role in oxidative phosphorylation. It is interesting from a sports physiology perspective. It also has sections on diseases which are now being researched more than ever (AZ, Parkinson's) and these sections provide a brief background on such diseases and their connection to the mitochondria. This book is fascinating and makes for a good companion to Lane's, Power, Sex, and Suicide. If new to this area Lane's is a easier first read. I think that for an average person, with a very keen interest in the cell, the book provides as a challenging yet fascinating read.
