So dense and repetitive it was impossible to glean any information from it in fewer than three readings. Excellent reference for those already in the field, worthless to students.

Quite good in explaining matters, sometimes though the graphics didn't synchronize too well with the text, but very helpful images.
Another drawback would be that it settled onto too much details, but overall it is fairly well structured, a very good index.
The Contents and Chapter-naming need to be updated for students taking the subject, but coming down to the information provided it is worth the money.

A very good book, Highly detailed , maybe too detailed for Med students and sometimes I felt that it was time consuming, and it would be suitable for post-graduate students rather than undergraduates,
"Lippincott's Illustrated Reviews" would be a better choice if you are looking for a concise beautifully illustrated Textbook.

Good, concise, and, as the title says, illustrated. If you find this lacking, get Devlin's Textbook of Biochemistry.
