Since the first edition was published in 1979, the development of techniques for studying and manipulating genes have transformed biochemistry. Nonetheless, enzymes remain at the heart of all living systems, and an understanding of how they operate is vital for understanding the chemistry of life. This book describes the principles of enzyme kinetics, with an emphasis on principles rather than an encyclopaedic accumulation of facts, to allow readers to fill gaps for themselves and proceed in the subject as far as they need to go. In this way it provides the basis for understanding enzyme kinetics, whether at the level of the undergraduate, the research student or the researcher. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Head-and-shoulders above the rest

The third edition of Cornish-Bowden's text provides a cogent exposition of the fundamentals of mathematical modeling and analysis of enzyme kinetics. With a focus on developing the basic principles that are applied in the field and development of instructive examples, this is a wonderful book for teaching or self-study. The text is clear and easily understood while remaining mainly self-contained in terms of necessary mathematical and physical concepts. In addition, it includes discussions on the historical development of key concepts, with several short bios of important figures such as Jacques Monod and Maud Menten. In sum, this book stands above others in the field in that it not only provides students and newcomers with the necessary background to assimilate and apply current research in the field, but also provides an interesting historical framework and examines the phylogeny of certain important equations and concepts. The result is a book that is a pleasure to read and learn from.
Clear and intelligent intro to enzyme kinetics

This is a superb introduction to enzyme kinetics for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, as well as anyone who has ever taken an introductory biochemistry course. If everyone who is doing enzyme kinetics these days read this book, their experimental design would be far less sloppy, and results much more reliable. It is not nearly as comprehensive as Segel's book, but its pedagogical value is great. (The only objection I had is that authors style of exposition sometimes gets a bit too acerbic. But, after all, the author is English :)
