Reviews

'In my opinion, the author has covered a traditionally 'boring field' with vivid description and interesting examples. My overall impression is that this book is comprehensive, illustrative and up-to-date ... and I would certainly recommend it to my students.' Prof. Yigong Shi, Department of Molecular Biology, Princeton University '... an outstanding supplement to the treatment offered in most textbooks of biochemistry ...very rewarding for students majoring in biochemistry, biophysics, or biotechnology.' Prof. Frank Vella, Department of Biochemistry, University of Saskatchewan '... a very readable and informed introduction to energy transformation at several levels of biological organization: molecules, cells, and multicellular organisms ... a good introduction to the new field of biological thermodynamics and represents an important contribution to the literature.' Dr Lloyd Demetrius, Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, Harvard University, USA and Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics, Berlin
