Editorial Reviews

Review

Molecules and Medicine is a fascinating introduction to the convergence of chemistry and physiology, and to the emergence of the science of molecular medicine.” (The Nucleus, January 2010)

"Molecules and Medicine is extremely well organized and integrates history, chemistry, biology, and pharmacology of drug development seamlessly." (The Quarterly Review of Biology, September 2008)

"…I find this to be a useful book for somemone teaching a biochemistry class.  Use of examples and information from Molecules and Medicine should make material in lectures seem more relevant to students and assist motivation for learning." (Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, May/June 2008)

"This is a treasure trove of information about molecules as medicines." (Education in Chemistry, May 2008)

"Molecules and Medicine is an engaging book that takes the reader into the world of small molecule clinical therapeutics and how they are discovered and used to improve health." (CHOICE, March 2008)

"…numerous colorful illustrations that help to explain the various topics covered make it easy and interesting reading." (ChemBioChem, March 2008)

5.0 out of 5 stars well written and clearly illustrated May 2, 2010
By J. Alia
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a book for anyone with a little background in chemistry to a lot who is interested in how submicroscopic entities, molecules, are biologically active and are being used as medicine. The first chapter on chemical bonding and molecular structural formulas gives a good introduction or review for students. The rest of the book focuses on the molecules that constitute modern pharmaceuticals, their structure and activity. The book is organized to make it easy to find medicinal molecules based on there uses. The writing is concise and informative, and the illustrations are excellent. I recommend this book to students interested in medical fields and anyone interested in the molecular aspect of popular medicines. A truly excellent book!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Chemists View May 29, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent production. Well writen and illustrated.My only criticism is that the one page allotted to most of the molecules in the book is a little skimpy - at least for a chemist. Otherwise I think it is an excellent introduction for those with some chemistry background and certainly for undergraduate chemistry majors or even the better premeds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! March 1, 2008
By Sunny
Format:Paperback
This is really a very interesting book that touches on some important aspects of drugs while covering the real breakthroughs in this field. The individual summaries on each of the drugs are very helpful, though brief and thus incomplete. However, you really do need a background in organic chemistry and biology to get the most out of it-- the book is oddly accessible and out of read at the same time.

Straight forward, "what you need to know" type textbook. Well written and very informative. All of the pictures used are useful and not there to just make things look pretty.
