Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book provides undergraduates with an excellent overview of molecular virology. This is an absolutely necessary book for students who have not been exposed to this topic and require a book that provides this information in a clear and concise manner. Updated editions are extremely important in such a rapidly changing field. New discoveries have been included in this edition which enables students to feel that they are receiving the latest information."

Format: Paperback
Overall the writing style is generally easy to follow, but there are many confusing passages (where a new concept may be introduced with no real effort to explain it.) At times the author gives the impression that he expects the reader to know absolutely nothing about viruses but virtually everything else about biology and biochemistry. Undergraduates will likely find it confusing at times, while graduates will likely crave something deeper.

This book doesn't really talk much about pathology, it really just discusses molecular virology. Of course, one can extrapolate that from the title but still, just a heads up. Again, I find myself wanted more information on more viruses. It's definitely good for molecular virology if you just need an overview but if you are looking for a specific virus, you may not find it.

The product was in good shape. It was delivered at the right time. I am satisfied with everything. As about the book, I have mixed opinion. Not the best around. But I did not have a choice since it is the text book.
