I bought this to read alongside the physiology lectures I am taking as part of my biology course. I have found it to be extremely useful for understanding difficult topics and well worth the money. The chapters are well thought out, well written and cover every easpect of animal physiology in detail but also in a way that's not too difficult to understand. There are diagrams and charts included on every page which are great for making some of the more complex sections a lot clearer and easier to understand.
As a previous reviewer pointed out this is quite a detailed textbook with some complex language which may not suit everyone. If you want something that's short and easy to read this probably isn't the book for you but, if you want to really understand the subject then this book is what you need!
