Review

PRAISE FOR THE PREVIOUS EDITION
“Enthralls the reader….Core concepts are explained from first principles in a manner that is lucid and unambiguous....That the authors have assembled a seminal cell biology textbook cannot be disputed….really ought to be an intrinsic part of every bioscience undergraduate’s essential reading.”
- The Biochemist

"…the language and terminology used by the authors remain focused at a level appropriate to and accessible by undergraduate students….New users of the textbook will find it accessible and approachable….The instructor resources remain a valuable addition….I highly recommend it to all.”
- CBE-Life Sciences Education

"This attractive, accessible, visually oriented text covers the fundamentals of cell biology required to understand biomedical and broader issues that affect students' lives."
- SciTech Book News

Essential Cell Biology, fourth edition, provides an up-to-date introduction to the fundamental concepts of cell biology as well as rapidly growing fields such as stem cell biology, development, and cancer....This book is ideal for students taking an introductory cell or molecular biology course, yet is also suitable for individuals looking to simply refresh their understanding of some of the basics of cell biology....Students will gain a broad understanding of biological processes from the latest edition of Essential Cell Biology, which will also help them as they advance to more specialized topics of biology and biomedical research.” –Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine
