I wanted to read this book as a review for what I learned earlier. I was very impressed with how it helped me. It is very easy to read and explains facts clearly for any reader. The pictures and model illustrations coherence the reading along well and I found it offered excellent reinforcement for what I already knew. I would recommend this as a must read for all entry-level, science undergraduates.
