    5-0 out of 5 stars Well written and organized textbook
    This was my textbook for Biology 101 & 102. This book was a pleasure to read. It is clearly written and not dry at all so it was easy to keep focus. Even in my upper level classes, I find myself referring back to it occasionally and am still impressed by it. An important point I would like to make is that, if you are using this as a course textbook, the CD is invaluable. The animated tutorials and chapter quizzes, (which are quite thorough), kept me one step ahead. That CD shaved hours off of my study time for each test.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very Comprehensive
    Actually found this one in my storage boxes and dusted it off for a look see. Holds up against contemporary text in classes now. When it says buy used from like $2, that's a helluva deal. For a science book over 10 years old, it still does a bang up job on subject of genes, ecology, mechanisms of evolution....the chapter on biological diversity is almost complete enough to be a zoology text.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Long, dense, and at first look tedious - but absolutely worth it.
    This book was used in my AP Bio class, where my teacher's constant reminders to "read the book" usually went unnoticed. This isn't because Campbell's book is necessarily boring or difficult to understand; in fact, the situation is quite the opposite. Campbell delves into the concepts of biology with more than adequate depth and breadth for the subject, offering both the basics and the details necessary to survive AP Bio (and, from the way my AP Exam went, college freshman Bio, too).

    3-0 out of 5 stars Brilliance and Ignorance Together For One Very High Price
    This is by far the best that Campbell & Co. have produced.The text reads easily and with great clarity.The difference of this 7th edition over previous editions is significant, and nearly worth the price.However, paying nearly $150 for a text is ridiculous.The publishers obviously think they can command such a premium because this text is so closely linked with the current American public high school's Biology Advanced Placement test.In short, they feel they have taxpayers over a barrel on this and can 'get away with it'.Shameful.Also, Campbell and Reece are radical evolutionists.Do not expect balance or 'both sides of the argument' presented on any of the more controversial aspects of Darwin's theory.There is no debate as far as they are concerned.Though 'spontaneous generation' was disproven by Louis Pasteur and Francisco Redi over 150 years ago, Campbell and Reece cling to this notion with strange, obsessive passion that borders on the bizarre.Their arrogance on this important issue strongly detracts from what is an outstanding, and otherwise balanced resourse.Why not address some contrary points of view to Darwinian evolution and even (gasp!) admit many of the more infamous errors by overly enthusiastic biologists in the past (e.g. the "Nebraska Man" of the Scopes Monkey Trial was actually only two teeth; the "Piltdown Man" was a hoax that was taught as fact in American universities for nearly 40 years, etc...).Such arrogance quickly leads to blindness, and has no place in real science. But, in spite of these confusing departures from real science (science being that which is both observable and testable), the text has some outstanding qualities that make it one of the premier sources in the field.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive, Expensive, Thorough,& Biased
    This certainly is the definitive word for biology students.The 7th edition reads faster, with more clarity and interest, than the previous edition by far.Does this warrant the outrageous price ?Doubtful, but since public schools (i.e taxpayers) are footing the bill for the most part, the publishers do this with relative impunity.This latest edition has stunning photos and graphics, and these add greatly to the text's readability.The chapters are short and concise, and the review questions and self-test items are excellent.The CD Rom that accompanies the text is also excellent and highly recommended.The optional study guide is not however, as it has a thoroughly mediocre quality and superfluous nature.Of even greater offense is the "pay per view" website that is offered for additional resources.After paying $100 for a text, and then be expected to pay more for Web assistance is unabashedly mercenary.However the objective reader will find Campbell & Reece's greatest flaw in its blatant bias concerning the theory of evolution.The 'theory' is not treated as such, but as an obvious fact, with no contrary points of view to any of the controverisal aspects of the theory included whatsoever.This is no small matter.Campbell and Reece simply assume that the spontaneous generation of life indeed occurred at some time in the Earth's past (though this has never been demonstrated experimentally--ever) and that DNA and RNA rose via the random chance of fortuitous collisions of molecules over time, (again, with no experimental evidence to justify these claims), the serious reader must earnestly question why the theory is presented in each chapter with an almost obsessive fervor.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book, mercenary publisher -- caveat emptor
    This is a lovely textbook. It is very up-to-date and well organized. It ihas full-color printing throughout the text and great self-assessment questions. The CD-ROM (included) also has many helpful resources.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Handy reference
    I didn't have this book during my P3 (3rd year of PharmD school) year; we used the text by Kradjan that had a patient-based format. DePiro's more traditional format makes it easier to find info quickly. The downloadable format of this text (which comes with the book) makes it even faster to find info. A downside would be books like these are out-of-date as soon as they're published, but I've been using the DePiro just fine for my P4 clerkships and plan to use Kradjan's as a doorstop. (I'm not really a kid)

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book for a great price
    I received my order fairly quickly and the book was great. I would definately order from them again.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Standard by Which Others are Compared
    It's difficult to write a review of this book because most of the people who are even thinking of buying it have probably used it already. They have seen it in the library, their professors have shown it to them, or it is required for the course they are taking.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing photography -- no narrative -- great coffee table book
    As other reviewers have said, the photography is top notch.I will focus my review on the difference between this book and his "classic", A Child Is Born.When I was deciding on my purchase I did not know which book would be better for my purposes, so I hope to shed some light on that for others.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful images of the human lifespan
    Lennart Nilsson took the first image of a living human embryo in the 1960s and stunned the world.Now, Life is an absolutely amazing book of images documenting human life from DNA through fetal development and birth.The second half of the book focuses on the human body, it's organs, tissues the things that eventually threaten life - bacteria and viruses.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant photography...
    The photography in this book is proof positive of the miraculousness of life and the beginning of a human soul.I heartily recommend this book for a deeper look at the creation of a baby and its subsequent growth. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Doctor's Jokes Don't Work
    Yes, I understand that Doctors believe the human body is SO complex that they feel they have to add little elves, sex jokes, and personal, inside humor to make the book readable; However, you can do basic education and keep people reading by not mystifying.I personally took offense at some of the body labels and the condescending way this book approaches the body. I've read several books similar to this, all in an effort to keep my 65 year old body young, and to protect my children from disease.I found Rayna Gangi's Book, and Andrew Weil's books to be much more respectful, and hence, more informative and readable.These guys are capitalizing on the YOU premise, and obviously laughing and joking all the way to the bank.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I wish I could personally thank the authors
    I also bought the RealAge makeover book.I highly recommend that if you enjoyed this book.It has even more details, IMO.I am following the workout plan in that book and have been for the last 48 days.I feel fantastic.I also got my multivitamins based on their recommendations.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Yes - Basic - But Thats What The General Population Still Needs
    As a Fitness Pro and Lifestyle Consultant - it is clear the general population still lacks knowledge of the basics. While a good number of reviews state this book is not a good one because it only covers the basics - I disagree.

    5-0 out of 5 stars great reference of psychiatric illnesses
    I think this book will be a pretty good resource for anyone searching for information regarding sleep disorders and mood swings. It will also teach anyone new to psychiatrics valuable information on dementia, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, etc. as well as diagnoses associated with the illnesses.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The closest thing to Diagnostic Guidelines in Psychiatry
    This is the full manual that you need to at least be in the ballpark on a diagnosis to help treat your patients with reasonable certainty.With Diagnosis, there is prognosis...and with this book, you can give a patient some relatively confident answers about what they are experiencing.One disadvantage to this full text is that it is large, and there is a lot of verbage. The scaled down desk version or the pocket guide to the DSM IV that you may want to have on rounds.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Still "The" Text We All Know About
    DSM will remain as the bible of psychiatry. Despite its shortcomings, DSM has made it possible for clinicians to talk more objectively about psychiatric illnesses. Now more than ever, people around the globe can actually understand what 'schizophrenia' or 'bipolar disorder' really is. So if you're a trainee or a practising clinician, devour it, master it, enjoy it, and use it. But don't take the criteria too literally. Highly recommended! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars hands down, this behemoth deserves 5 stars
    Yes, 1616 pages and 2 inches thick of madness can be intimidating, but this book is sheer awesomeness in lots of ways. Whether you are self-taught, actually taking the class, or just want a desk reference for cell bio, this is definitely the one to get.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Canonical Work
    This is a beautifully written textbook that presents the canonical version of what is currently known about cellular biology at the molecular level.The illustrations are clear and the text is easy to follow.The only shortcoming of the book is that, necessarily, it stays above the messy details in order to maintain clarity.The result, inevitably, is that some areas are glossed over (transcription activation is one example, but there are many others) and some areas appear to be understood when in reality there is a great deal of disagreement (for example, gene splicing).But these omissions are appropriate because the intention of the book is to provide an overview, not a specialist in-depth examination of every topic.This is a great primer for college students or educated people wanting to know just a little more detail about how life works.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Simply love it---a plethora of information
    This book is a wonderful source of knowledge for anyone who is interested in cell biology; or if you are studying it--like myself.I give a 100% gaurantee that if you purchase this book you will be satisfied. I just finished reading the chapter on pathogens; wow so much information - it's truly ubelievable. That is what else I love about this book: it can be read sectionally. All one has to do is read the first three chapters to establish a foundation of the basic knowledge; you can skip that step all together if you know your stuff. Simply put: buy this book. Also, I forgot to mention that it includes a beautifully designed CD-ROM; it has animations that suppliment what you learned and more--not your average CD extra. The reason this review is so short and concise is because the other one I wrote didn't get saved--that was the long one with detail. ... Read more

    I work in law not medicine.I bought Taber's because of the many personal injury cases with which I was involved.People talk about legal language - nothing compares to medical terminology.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Great staple for anyone in the medical field
    Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary is all encompassing, defining the simplest to the most complex terms. To be honest, however, I rarely even open it because it came with access to their website for a 6 mo trial. Since I do most of my work (I'm still in school) on the computer, it's much easier for me to run a search than go get the book. Potential buyers: this is more of a "dictionary" than encyclopedia. You're not going to get long explanations but short definitions, otherwise it would be volumes and volumes long. One more thing: it's a very pretty book - well bound; having it on your book shelf makes you look like you actually might know what you're doing!! ... Read more

    If you actually buy this book you're paying for the illustrations. Don't waste your time actually reading it, the presentation of the material is ponderous and completely unimaginative. The chapter on immunology is one of the worst I've seen anywhere.
    3-0 out of 5 stars X and Y chromosomes
    A more serious omission is the absense of the x chromosome from the glossarythough that y is there, unconsciously reinforcingthat men are incomplete females?Males come equipped with beefed up sixpacks whereas the woman look like demurelittle housewives. Artists havetried to depict other races but thegender representation is pathetic. Aheterosexist pro-male interpretation of human sexuality is foundthroughout the book, which can be annoying.Some of the comments obviously written with students in mindare patronizing. The layout is repetitious andand at times quite unstimulating.The best detail was why a chicken breast is white considering its a muscle.

    3-0 out of 5 stars laughable omission
    How can this really be an Anatomy and Physiology textbook written by a Phd?There is not one picture or drawing of a male foreskin (prepuce). One does not have to wonder why the medical community is so ill prepared to deal with a normal male body. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Interesting read
    I found the book interesting from the standpoint of the infinite emotional fluxuation women seem to deal with explained scientifically.As a man I have always wanted a woman, devoid of feminism and emotion to try to explain why women act the way they do.That is not to say that I feel superior, I have always just been facinated by the "differences" in how men and women think and how women approach issues, problems, and joys differently than men.I have been married to the same woman for over 35 years, and have had a constant, close companion as a study.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Not a Scientist
    I am not a scientist, researcher , or doctor and therefore can't comment on the extensive reviews done by those in the clinical fields; however, I can comment on the use of "cutesy" language and the "dumbing" down approach to the female brain.How much research is being done on the ethereal energy that separates male and female? Maybe I'm too "new age" or alternative-minded, but I've learned alot more about gender differences, male and female energy, female brains and reactions from Deepak Chopra, Rayna Gangi and Andrew Weil than I did from this fairly bad attempt.

    1-0 out of 5 stars WORTHLESS
    Actually, this book has negative value: Not only can I not give it to anyone, for fear of perpetuating the notions therein; but I can't throw it away without wasting a couple pounds of paper.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Standard by which All Obstetrics Texts are measured
    There is perhaps no medical specialty that has more misconceptions, "wives tales" and variation than Obstetrics.Williams Obstetrics is more exhaustively comprehensive than any other text for general Obstetrics.Williams has long prided itself on presenting "evidence-based medicine" - separating the wives tales from medical knowledge obtained from published studies from peer-reviewed journals.Perhaps there are those who prefer their Obstetrics with a little voodoo.For those who want to know the most up-to-date scientifically based Obstetrics, Williams is your book!

    This is a great book for finding out how to bring people of differing race to an understanding. For instance, I remember one example where White students, approximately between the ages of thirteen and sixteen, were, as part of a therapeutic course, required to refer to all Black people in their environment as 'sir'.This simple sign of respect was a great way to dismantle racism.

    This is one of the best psychology books I have ever read. Not only does it provide advice on how to treat people from certain cultures, it teaches the reader about the culture itself. This book is a marriage of cultural studies and psychology. While the book is large, the reader shouldn't be intimidated by its size. The book is broken up into several (50+) chapters and each chapter focuses on one culture. The book doesn't have to be read cover to cover. Each chapter is free standing.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A must read for all professionals working with families
    This book is insightful as the author elaborates on different ethnic populations and the broad range of cultural influences that family therapists encounter in clinical practice. It is a must read for all professionals working in the field of family therapy, social work, psychotherapy and counselling who work with different ethnic populations. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Read as well as reference
    Let me preface this review with: I have a huge library of chemistry related books, of which books relating to name reactions has a prominent footprint. With that said, this is one of the most readable of its kind. Before this, I enjoyed the Jie-Jack Li name reaction book. However, as with all of them, it was just a reference manual. Kurti's, however, is a well thought out "text" with background on each reaction and color coded mechanisms. It is an excellent book for both beginners and PI's. Sick as it may sound, I actually purchsed a second copy for home as well as the office. My conclusion is that this is one of maybe 3 name reaction books that make a complete reference set.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Un nouveau classique
    Un outil ideal pour apprendre les name reactions, etudier les mecanismes et trouver les references de la decouverte initial jusqu'aux toutes dernieres modification. Un livre tres utile autant pour les etudiants gradues que pour les organiciens aguerris.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for Cume's
    I got this for my girlfriend who is knee deep in her organic cumes...It's been a lifesaver.And I look forward to taking advantage of it when I get to take mine....Oh joy...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Incomparable
    You've got to have a Netter's Atlas on hand.You never know when you'll need it.Even if you are well out of medical school, well cocooned in your tight little sub-specialty, you still need Netter.You never know when your elderly neighbor is going to knock on your door and ask you precisely which muscle in her back hurts when she stands up, just to pick a random example.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Can you imagine that the pictures drawn by Netter are far much clearer than what we saw during dissections?
    I remembered that when we did dissections in the anatomy class throughout the anatomy classes of the 1st 2 years, one student per table (who do not want to touch the corpse) would be responsible to bring and hold the Netter for the entire lesson. Netter really helped us a lot! I have browsed many other anatomy atlas and have not yet found one that is better than Netter. Although some atlases contain real pictures, they are not as clear as that in Netter! I can say, "Netter + Moore" is the golden combination for anatomy!
    5-0 out of 5 stars Visual Learner
    If "a picture could say a thousand words", this book is it.I am an LPN turned Medical Coder.The book has made Anatomy `come alive'.I struggled through 2 anatomy/physiology classes in the above 2 programs & still did not feel like I understood.If you are a visual learner, this book is a must.It does have to be supplemented with written text as others have said, I use a google search when my textbooks are not enough.To determine if this book would be helpful, think of it like this, if you put together a big entertainment center, which would you find more helpful: diagrams of where each screw, nut & bolt gets attached to what piece, OR by reading a description of each piece & the description of the piece it gets attached to.For me its diagrams, so the book for me was well worth the cost ($69 + tax at Barnes & Noble, 3rd edition, soft cover). ...

    This is an excellent read for any acupuncture student, practitioner or enthusiast!Deadman's language is poetry.The points come alive when reading this text!
    5-0 out of 5 stars Peter Deadman's A Manual of Acupuncture
    Not possible to find a better English language reference source than this book. I have used the book in hard copy but prefer it on CD. Quick to find items using CD and a notebook and CD weigh less that the actual manual. The pronunciations that come with the book on CD seem accurate, depending on the area from whence your Chinese comes. Good background data for all point locations and rationale for their use.

    3-0 out of 5 stars I'm on day 9...
    And I'm not impressed.Never again!This has been torture.I'm more energetic when I wake up in the morning, but that's about the only positive.I admit I made some modifications: used reconstituted, bottled lemon juice, for two days I had just water, and one day apple cider.I'm going to keep going until day 10 just for the sense of accomplishment.Anyway, I've been trying to clear up my allergies and skin problems, and so far this has not seemed much help.I don't know, maybe it has helped but I don't realize it.Next I'm going to try using oxy-powder to cleanse the gunk from the colon in a simple, non-torturous way (just have to take some pills) and also do a series of gallbladder/liver flushes.My point is, the Master Cleanser is just one part of detox-ing: it is a kidney flush, but one would be well-advised to do a liver-gallbladder flush right afterwards.This book has helped many people, I'm sure, but so far my experience has told me that it's not for me.I'd only do this again as a last resort.Here are some helpful sites: curezone and [...].That's just my opinion.To all the people out there struggling with health problems, good luck, and don't give up, and don't let the conventional medical industry fool you into assuming there is no cure for whatever you have, and don't let irrational skeptics sway you!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good program
    I did alot of research on this clense before i started and made a commitment to try it.I sort of eased into the diet by having 1 small meal a day consisting of organic spinach salad.On say 2 of the wean i experienced a terrible headache but i honestly believe that after 20 years of drinking pepsi with everything- this was simply caffeine withdrawl.Those who make it sound easy will fool you into failing.The lemonade will give you what you need, but after a lifetime of eating you will definately crave food.It will get easier but never easy.You have to commit yourself.I compare this to quitting smoking which is my next task.
    4-0 out of 5 stars How often do you take food for granted?
    I once heard on a health program that most of us have 'stuff' in us (in our intestines) that's at least two months old!Wouldn't that be great to remove all of that gunk residing in your intestines and toxins in other parts of your body?The Master Cleanse was a great way to do it for me.It was a bit challenging because I *love* food, and just not eating was such a foreign concept.But the drink is pretty tasty and I felt all of its cleansing effects.It's easy to tell that this book was written half a century ago, though the content is easy to digest and intriguing.The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is that it tries to convince the reader to stay away from animal and animal-derived foods once the cleanse is done, as if that's the only way to diet for life.He threw in a bunch of recipies for the blandest-sounding food, so only two-thirds of the book was useful to me.The main part of it, The Lemonade Diet, is the heart of the book and it's worth a whole lot more than $6.50. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars NO description necessary.
    I read this as a student in my 3rd and 4th year. This book will help you be a better physician, no matter what specialty. If you buy one book your entire career, this is it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Most accurate and cool. Go on editors...
    I'm the physician who've alredy suggested HPIM to use color boxes, to summerize many longer chapters like infections, to enlarge many chapters like cardiology, to make pocket version thinner and larger, etc. You editors, reall proffesionals. Because you follow the readers. Do you read the other feedbacks? You see most of other professionals thank for the same topics. Now, I'd like to suggest three more thing, which have not been performed yet: HPIM must be reduced (it must be only one volume) and editors need to follow updates more. Medicine is not AIDS, only. Do you follow the latest datas related to diabetes, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, etc. Because their prevalence is higher than 10%. If you think about these suggestions, I think HPIM may go on to be no 1 in this field. I'd like to write more to editors and publishers if they reply.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Also great for specialties outside of internal medicine
    So, everyone knows that Harrison's is the Bible for internists and residents of internal medicine.As a 3rd year medical student, I used the book to research whenever I had to give a presentation or wanted to know more about my patients.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I'm in Biology heaven
    Ah, the holy grail of textbooks: To find a textbook that is completely clear, explains all aspects of the subject, lets you understand rather than just memorize so you can think independently on the subject and actually enjoyable to read.Textbooks like those are incredibly rare and they are worth their weight in gold once you find them.Looks like we found one for biology.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Poor Organization
    I decided to buy this book instead of borrowing from the library because of the pretty colorful pictures it has. However, I regret spending $100 on this book because the text is poorly orgnanized. Although some chapters are written well, you will see content are scrambled within some chapters making it hard to take notes. There are also errors like they mentioned that Th cell help cellular response, but they ever tell you how. The activation gate and inactivation gate mentioned in the neuron chapters are confusing. The mentioned it on the text, but they don't show it on the pictures.

    I got the book for my ICU rotation, its a easy read. Goes over the imp stuff and the basics too. Liked it a lot.

    5-0 out of 5 stars excellent book overall
    Too little details in places (mechanical ventilation) but too wordy in others.Excellent cardiopulmonary phys review, good breadth of subjects.Kinda big book but fast reading.

    5-0 out of 5 stars My favorite
    This book is rare because it is original. It welcomes you to the real world of critical care as seen by one expert physician. It was probably never intended for quick reference or board prep. The relatively large print and generous spacing make the book bigger but more pleasant to read. ... Read more
