More About the Author

Mark has a BSc in biochemistry and a PhD in molecular genetics, and trained as a research scientist. However, in finding that he enjoyed the lecturing side of life more than lab work, he moved into teaching. He wrote his first textbook whilst in his first year of teaching. Slightly oddly, for a biochemist, that book was a physics book because he didn't like any of the physics textbooks on the market at the time. This photocopied effort did however get the attention of a publishing company - Longman.

He has now written for most of the major UK publishers (Pearson - including Edexcel, Heinemann & Longman), Nelson Thornes, Hodder Education and Collins Education. He has also acted as series editor on a number of publications, including the hugely successful Exploring Science.

Hobbies include travel, skiing, photography and writing classical music (or as some would describe it 'creaking gate music'). He has made occasional appearances on television as a life science presenter and also undertakes voice-over work.

4.0 out of 5 stars No answers! 27 Oct 2009
By Raj
I purchased this book for my son as additional material for self study at home. The book is printed nicely with lot of illustrations. The text is presented in an easy to read format.

There are several questions asked in each chapter, obviously to test the student's understanding of the topic, but no answers are provided in the book for these questions. If the child writes the answers, how can one validate the answers? The only way for the parent to validate the answers is to study the text along with the child.

It appears there is a supporting teachers CD ROM coming /available, which may contain clues for the answers, but that is priced very very high. We cannot afford to buy the CD ROM just to get the answers at more than 10 times the price of the text book.

If the school follows the text book, and the teacher is there to validate the answers, then this is a good book. In our case, my son is studying in scotland, where a different curriculum is being followed. I purchased this book (along with the other two science books in this series: Physics and Chemistry) as additional study material. Unfortunately, without answers in the text book, I am finding it very difficult to verify the answers written down by my son after reading the text. My other concern is that if the child writes a wrong answer and assumes it is right, and if this not corrected in time, the child will carry the wrong understanding of the concept.

For the high quality printing and presentation of the topics, I am giving four stars. If the publishers provide the answers to the questions at least in their website, then the book deserves 5 stars.
