This review is from: Exploring The Way Life Works: The Science Of Biology (Paperback)
This a book that will delight anyone interested in biology, not just beginners or younger readers. I have an advanced degree in biology and find it rewarding and clarifying. It explains and depicts (biology is a very visual subject) key concepts in the organization of living things, getting to the heart of the matter in streamlined fashion, without the (as far as the aim of the book goes, unnecessary) mass of detail you'll find in a standard bio text. This might be called "fundamental biology from an advanced standpoint." It can be read multiple times, perhaps once quickly but again more deliberately, allowing time to ponder what is being conveyed. Love it.

I am thinking of buying this book to use with my students next year but am wondering, have you found anything in this book that is out of date? I notice that it was published more than 10 years ago. Thanks!
