I have a couple of books looking at the mitochondria, and organelle that is now under the microscope of the international community, and this book is one of the best for a non-specialist with deep interests in cell biology and a readable text. It is very detailed, but novel like.
If you are looking for literature on the Mitochondria (or Cell Biology/Histology) it is hard to find better than this as a general easy and informative read.
Anyone who enjoys Richard Dawkins will enjoy this book too.
