This is not the edition being reviewed (older edition I bought.) Also Amazon seems to have my name wrong! Oh well)
However, I have been doing a self-study program with online courses (general Biology 1A and 1B UC Berkeley) that use this book and two other courses (DVD and MIT online) that use Scott Freeman's book and another use's Purves et all.
The Campbell book is by far the easiest to understand because the writing is clear and does not add "extraneous" material, such as more people and history although there is some. It seems to give just the right amount of detail. At times it has clarified concepts in such a simple way (one line or sentence) that somehow the Freeman book makes so complex. I like the Purves book second. And the Freeman book third for it's extra detail. I back up whatever comes up in class with Wikipedia articles, animation, and pictures anything I need more on and with Khan Academy (college prep) I did not have.
I highly recommend this book for intro Biology animal and plants. The Campbell book also has better questions (than the others though not perfect) at the ends of the chapters. You cannot "guess" the answers as in the other books and have to be able to rule out each choice because you understand why they are not correct. This approach helps make sure you really got the chapter and develops critical thinking.
