I had attempted at one point to read a biochemistry text and it was slow going. I could not see the forrest for the trees, i.e., I tended to get lost in the detail and not get the big picture. I have almost read this book, annotated it heavily, and it is giving me the big picture. Now that I see the forrest, perhaps I can have a look at the trees. As an RN, I had a basic understanding of biology. I had also read a basic college level chemistry text. One might want to read Chemistry for Dummies first if you don't have that, but I don't think it's absolutely necessary. One of the things that I like about this book is that it takes away the mystique that only scientists, doctors, etc. can understand biochemistry. You have to work at it hard, but you can get it.
