Reviews from Amazon users which were colected at the time this book was published on the website:

⭐This nicely illustrated and easy to read guide is comprehensive, though you will need to be willing to expand your vocabulary considerably. I wish it had a glossary!I bought both the paper and the Kindle editions to see if reading would be better with one than the other. It’s definitely better to have the paper edition because it allows you to quickly page back and forth to see illustrations (all are black and white) while reading the text. The illustrations are larger with the paper edition, as well, and the book is lightweight so not difficult to carry with you on the commuter train. Last but not least, you can pass your paper edition on to another reader, impossible with the Kindle edition unless you want to loan your Kindle to someone for a while. I’ve learned from my comparison that for books with many illustrations, the hard copy is the way to go.

⭐I devoured this book within a few days–loved it. I think it gives a good introduction with details on the the topics of molecular and cellular biology. However, if you don’t have a background in chemistry (specifically, molecular diagrams) , you might want to search YouTube and Google for online tutorials. The book does try to provide some understanding on that subject, but it left be a little bewildered. Fortunately for me, I found an excellent video on YouTube that covered chemical structures. I offer the URL below:[…]Overall, I think this book is an excellent resource for those who haven’t studied biology since high school, which is my situation. I highly recommend this book for the novice.

⭐I’m prepping for my bio class before fall gets here and this book has been really helpful. Very easy to understand , although, in some chapters i have to re-read and YouTube some information. This will be my reference book.

⭐even if edition was 2009, it’s still very useful as an entry book to bionext generation sequencing, protein sequencing technologies have improved so much, but this book helps me with basic vocabularies so I can understand the most recent papers in the space

⭐I found this book to be an excellent overview on how cells function and how genetics work. Most major aspects of cells are covered from what each organelle does and how certain processes cells perform work. These include things such as cell respiration, photosynthesis, and mitosis.The other important aspect covered in this book is DNA and genetics. The explanation of what purpose DNA has and how gene traits work is very good and easily understandable.Although this book is intended for mostly anyone from a student of biology to the reader with a casual interest in science, I found the section on cell respiration, with its multi-step processes, to be rather confusing. However, that is my only real complaint about the book.In conclusion, I recommend this book to anyone with an interest in biology, cells, or genetics.

⭐Really a great way to learn Molecular Biology. The writing style is excellent with enough humor to make the information fun to read. I found this book to be a replacement for a number of introductory books on this subject since it covers the subject in a thorough and informative way, better than most others. Would recommend it highly to those interested in the subject.

⭐I picked up this book simply because I wanted a general “primer” on the subject of Molecular and Cell Biology prior to digging into other materials. It has served that purpose well. I feel as though I have a general grasp of many new concepts. I must admit that I did find it necessary to re-read many chapters to truly grasp the material sufficiently. Occasionally new vocabulary and terms were used in a chapter but not explained until one or two chapters later. Also, not all referenced images were helpful. Overall though, a great ‘starter’ book.

⭐I am a pre-pharmacy student. I’ve downloaded this book as well as the basic Biology for Dummies, and Biochemistry for Dummies. I find for my General College Bio class, I read this book the most and get the best info from it. As supplementary reading to my text book, I find this explains topics for more understanding and its not a dry as my textbook can be.I think all the Dummies books are great for extra reading, and I am sure I’ll be buying more for Chemistry and other classes as well.

⭐Sadly this book really failed to meet my expectations. The writing is uncharismatic and bland; it conveys no excitement about this exciting topic and as such it makes for a rather dull read. That’s an immense shame because if there is one thing a book for beginners should do, it’s create a sense of excitement. It also suffers from a derth of genuinely useful images. At a quick flick you do see various diagrams and imagine they will be helpful, but when you get into the text you realise how pointless or incomprehensible those images really are; they are either just repeating what is said in the text or they are a complete abstraction and need much more knowledge to get why they are important. Any yet there are so many places where I was thinking to myself “an image here would be really useful”… but no.Perhaps this book is useful as a reference book to those that need reminding about things they already know/knew. But if you are wanting to understand this topic as a newbie then I would have to recommend looking elsewhere.

⭐This book has helped me out massively while studying at uni to help me understand the nitty gritty before delving into further research! Very easy to read and understand what is being said and easy to find what your looking for if you need a specific section or topic!

⭐But my daughter never much used it and still managed to get a 2:1 in Biochemistry. Perhaps she’d had got a first if she had.

⭐I love the DUMMIES books and definitely recommend this one.

⭐This is for my daughter for her higher biology
