Product Description

Review

'A superby presented book - in keeping with the high standard of the previous editions.' -- R. E. Glass - Nottingham University

'An excellent textbook which combines basic principles of biochemistry with clinical situations and pathophysiology.' -- J. M. Land - Clinical National Hospital London

'Another fantastic book.' -- Gunnar Hansson - Gothenburg University

'I really like the chemical and structural approach to describing the changes in the molecules and the energetics involved.' -- Paul Craig, Rochester Institute of Technology

'Much improved - good cover of genetics and metabolism.' -- A. Nicolaou - Bradford University

'Nice updates, nice web resource. The organisation of some topics has improved (i.e. Glycolysis and Gluconeogenesis in the same chapter).' -- Dr Lorenzo Frigerio, University of Warwick

'The integration of evolution makes it the most exciting and revolutionary biochemistry text to appear since 1970.' -- James F. Koerner, University of Minnesota

‘Nice updates, nice web resource. The organisation of some topics has improved (i.e. Glycolysis and Gluconeogenesis in the same chapter).' -- Dr Lorenzo Frigerio, University of Warwick

Format: Hardcover
As a first year Biochemistry student at the University of Warwick I would defiantly recommend this book to anyone who is taking a degree in Biology/Biochemistry/Microbiology. At Warwick our course follows the content of the book and gives us the recommended reading pages for each topic.
If you have studied A-level Biology I think you will find this book very easy to follow and easy on the eye.
It assumes only knowlege of biochemistry up to A-level standard and then slowly builds to give a very thorough level of understanding.

This book provides detailed information on all subjects covered by the biochemistry modules in my degree. The layout is systematic, and the diagrams are very useful. I would recommend this to any student looking for a comprehensive biochemistry text to last throughout their degree.

I am a medical student in Italy. As far as I know, almost everyone in my University use Lehninger Principles of Biochemistry, as it said to be the most comprehensive.
I find it just too stuffed with "words", a feature which puts off students who really want to learn this fantastic subject.

On the contrary, Stryer's Biochemistry is systematic and very well structured. The explanations are clear and concise.

As to Devlin's biochemistry, it must be said that it offers many more medical insights than the others, but it seems to me to lack clear and easy-to-study explanations upon more "traditional" concepts: glycolysis, oxidative phosphorylation and so on.

An easy to understand text for Biochemistry at degree level. Clear illustrations and text is coloured to help you memorise topics easily. The book id divided into four parts THE MOLECULAR DESIGN OF LIFE, TRANSDUCING AND STORING ENERGY, SYNTHESIZING THE MOLECULES OF LIFE AND RESPONDING TO ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGES. These parts go into a great depth and I strongly recommend this to anyone studying Biochemistry. It's an excellent international edition.

OK, so I bought edition 5 on teh second hand bit of Amazon. i doubt whether there have been many significant changes in Edition 7 except for perhaps molecular biology and genetics.

Amazing purchase. I'd recommend it to all biochemistry students as it was recommended to me by few of my lecturers. The condition of book was very good.
