I am currently working my way through the kindle version of this book, and am approx. 40% of the way through. It is a good introduction and I'm learning a lot from it. One thing to be aware of; it is quite technical and launches rapidly into both molecular biology and engineering. Be prepared to work at understanding and look things up online if you aren't already familiar with both areas. There's some advanced math - Fourier transforms, for example, though they aren't essential to understand most of what is in the book. If you aren't familiar with biology I recommend reading a text on cellular or smaller-scale biology first.

This book cannot be considered a primer. It reads well, but unless you are an expert in the field you are at a loss of what is a futuristic discussion and what is possible today.

Unless you have a decent background in statistics, computer analysis and chemistry, the discussions will befuddle many of you.

Cannot fault the layout or the topics or the writing style. However, as stated earlier it is aimed at those that have more than just a basic understanding of the aforementioned subjects to really understand the intent and discussions in the book.

Covers many relevant aspects of biology, clear descriptions. Worked well as a teaching tool for both undergraduate and graduate students.
