What people are saying - Write a review
It's definitely a stadout book on biochemistry for comprehensive learning that covers all essential topics in a very clearly interpreted manner.
The best feature of this book is its illustrations. They are so good you don't even need to read the text. A picture paints a thousand words. For a discipline as complex as Biochemistry, diagrams and illustrations are the most effective learning tool.
