(11 December 2007)
The book helpfully connects abstract theory with experiments, particularly extending derivations to the the point of reaching experimentally measurable quantities, as for example in relating dissipation and fluctuations. These discussions show how statistical physics applies to biological machines described qualitatively in more introductory books such as Cats' Paws and Catapults: Mechanical Worlds of Nature and People.
The publisher web site for the book, including errata, is only available to instructors. This limits independent study with the book. There is some nonstandard notation and definition, such as for chemical potential and avoiding partial derivatives. While these are mentioned in the text when first introduced, they could be confusing to readers who skip to later chapters.
