4.0 out of 5 stars
Great for detail, but..., 26 Dec. 2012
Very good book in terms of content, diagrams, and high level of detail suited especially well for my purpose - I am a student studying biomedical science, where a comprehensive and interlinking understanding on a small to large scale is important. However, I gave only 4 stars because I downloaded the Kindle edition. Since I use this book for further reading and for references, and these are referenced by my lecturers in pages (referring to the hard copies of the books). The "pages" on Kindles are referred to as Locations and are completely unmatched to the pages of the hard copy version. I have looked this up and Kindles books are actually capable of showing page numbers, however, the publisher needs to include them. So this is probably a problem with the publisher and not Amazon itself.
Otherwise, useful and great book! For me, the major convenience of not having to carry a hefty book around was slightly tinged by the minor inconvenience of the lack of inclusion of hard copy versions of page numbers
