This book was recommended to accompany a graduate course in "Mathematics for Systems Biology." I have plenty of background in elementary mathematics through calculus and statistics so was not sure it would be valuable. I was wrong. First, it has a fresh approach to the mathematical concepts that make the connections to biology that I might have known but never put into words. Also, after it reinforces this foundation, it moves into clear explanations of probability and statistics ("normal" and inferential.) The equations are explained, graphics are strong, and concepts developed at a great pace. It was a book I wanted to read, from which I really needed to learn, and through which I was able to explain mathematical concepts to my college students with new examples and a deeper understanding. I highly recommend.
