Biochemistry is a major new
textbook designed and created specifically for non-majors courses in the
subject. Written by Prof. Terry Brown of
the University of Manchester (author of
Genomes and Gene Cloning), the book provides the necessary detail and
rigour expected for these courses, but without the extraneous material found in
the larger textbooks.
With an increasing number of students taking a shorter course in biochemistry
there is a growing need for a book that covers the subject concisely and
has been designed from the outset for these non-majors courses; it is not a
cut-down version of one of the larger books that dominate the market.
Although it is shorter, there is no compromise in content, style and coverage.
The book is attractively designed in full colour throughout with all the
pedagogical features expected in a major textbook. It covers what non-majors students
should be expected to know and is written in the clear and accurate writing
style for which Terry Brown is widely lauded.
With its competitive price and resources for adopting lecturers
(instructors CD containing all of the illustrations and diagrams from the
book, and answers to the end of chapter questions), Biochemistry will become
the textbook of choice for any non-majors biochemistry course.
