5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful book and invaluable resource
I write this as a University Professor who has spent most of his working life in research and teaching microbial and mitochondrial energy transduction systems.

3.0 out of 5 stars Similar to previous editions
Since I'm in the field of Bioenergetics, I was looking for a book that could give me a broader perspective on the themes that are outside of my scope. I thought this book was well writen but found it very similar to the previous editions. It has some "updates" but it could have been way more extensive in that aspect.

I would only recommend it if it is...

This review is from: Bioenergetics (Paperback)
I write this as a University Professor who has spent most of his working life in research and teaching microbial and mitochondrial energy transduction systems.
Bioenergetics4 by David Nicholls and Stuart Ferguson is, obviously, the 4th edition of their first book on this subject, published in 1982. This brought together into one place for the first time just about every topic within the subject. This was convenient but, more importantly, it provided a source of information and insight on a subject that was often poorly and inaccurately covered in standard textbooks (to some extent this continues to be the case).
The book is divided into three parts -bioenergetics principles; information on the protein structures and mechanisms involved in mitochondrial, bacterial and photosynthetic energy transduction; and a much expanded section on Cellular bioenergetics, Cell biology of the mitochondrian, Signalling between the mitochondrian and the cell, and Mitochondria in physiology and pathology.
What makes this such a valuable resource? Firstly, it can be trusted to be true. Then, excellent references to recent reviews on all topics are provided. The layout is a model of clarity. The Figures are plentiful, suitable and provide what is needed; for example, complex protein structures are provided together with superimposed diagrams for clarity.
A link to a comprehensive companion website is provided. This permits download of all Figures for use in production of slides for teaching etc.
In summary, if you are a student or teacher, beginner or expert researcher you will be delighted to have such a valuable resource. This is also beautiful book. My only negative comment is that I would have liked the option of investing more for a larger format hardback edition.

This book gives excellent coverage of how cells generate energy. It's both comprehensive in scope and detailed in its coverage.

I thought this book was well writen but found it very similar to the previous editions. It has some "updates" but it could have been way more extensive in that aspect.

I would only recommend it if it is the first bioenergetics book you're buying. If you want to save money you can buy the previous editions.
