Description
Ideal for those with a general interest in biology, this book easily draws readers into the material with lots of analogies and stories that help them readily relate "biological" concepts to others they are "already" familiar with, and by using a conversational tone that allows them to concentrate on the concepts, rather than struggling with scientific jargon.
