"This is an excellent teaching volume, which could readily be used not only be undergraduates and graduate students but also by fellows in clinical chemistry training programs." (Clinical Chemistry, October 2006) "Recommended as a primary teaching text in Biochemistry courses: noted for its depth and organization, well-written and grand in scope, the chapters moving at a perfect pace to give the student a lasting lesson in the biochemical processes." (Electric Review, September/October 2006) "...comprehensive and...appropriately updated. It should continue to help medical students see the relevance of biochemistry to medicine, which will only increase during their future careers.
