This book is an ultimate reference copy for biochemistry, which has greatly evolved over time since its first edition in the year 1985 by the legendary bio-chemist himself Dr.Albert Lehninger. If you are a bio-engineer, bio-scientist, research student, practising pharmacologist or in any way related to the life science or pharmaceutical industry, then you have definitely come across biochemistry and this book has more than everything you need to know about the subject and the new developments in the field ie. till June 2016 when it went into publication.
Although it is very costly (>7000 INR ~ 100 USD) here in India since it is an international edition of the original 2017 US edition. They have retained the overall page quality, colours, diagrams and design for the hardcover version which I have purchased. So yes it is a value for money. It also comes in a good plastic packaging from the seller (TBS Books) whom I purchased it from Amazon. I know there is an eBook as well for this same book, but personally I like to read a physical book rather than an eBook.
Cons : (This below review was spotted on the Amazon.com US website written by a medical practitioner)
"Despite its relative popularity among many, I find this textbook HIGHLY unprofessional, as the chemical/biochemical terms and names used throughout this book are COMMON names rather than the official IUBMB & IUPAC names.
For example, Lehninger uses the term "triolein" instead of "glyceryl trioleate", "glutamate" instead of "glutamic acid" (when presents the names of the 20 amino acids), and "adenylyl cyclase" instead of "adenylate cyclase".
The use of official accepted names throughout a biochemistry textbook (or any other scientific textbook) is an elementary expectation, but for some reason this textbook does not meet it. I would expect much more from a professional textbook. The use of common non-official terms rather than internationally-accepted official terms is one of the biggest difficulties I had to deal with during my studies as a student of emergency medicine. The amount of new, multi-disciplined information we forced to learn and master is already TREMENDOUS as it is, so I can't tell you how much frustrating it is to encounter 4 or 5 different terms throughout different textbooks, spare dozens of hours trying to properly assimilate them, then realising that they all refer to one, SINGLE entity (a chemical compound, a biochemical process, an anatomical structure, etc.). This is just absurd, and let me tell you something: at least in the healthcare sciences field, that kind of "terminological duplicities" is also a great cause for medical malpractice, as many healthcare professionals use different terms for the same disease, drug or medical procedure, putting their patients under great risk. I see it in my own eyes time and again. So... yes, my friend; using official accepted terminology DOES matter."
My view :
Since I am still in the process of reading the book, I have yet to come across these above mentioned differences. But yes, IUPAC/IUBMB standard is something that most books miss out on these days and prefer using COMMON names. This practice must improve not just for this book but for every chemistry book which is at the top of line.
It's makes u understand the concept in depth and has analytical problems for practice
I personally prefer it over other books
