WILLIAM K. PURVES, Harvey Mudd College, USA - DAVID SADAVA, Claremont Colleges, USA - GORDAN H. .

It's the first online e-book I've encountered that works the way it should. If you've had the misfortune of using an online text through OWL, you're familiar with the frustration - inability to use the scroll wheel, slow page loading times, and no real way to tailor the text to your needs.

Authoritative, thorough, and engaging, Life: The Science of Biology achieves an optimal balance of scholarship and teachability, never losing sight of either the science or the student.

His clear explanation of the concepts with bright, colorful pictures have helped my students to understand biological concepts for the AP Bio exam as well as preparing them for college. The questions after each and every chapter plainly incorporate the chapter's lessons as well as inclusion of the continuity of life that is important in all biology teaching

Co-published by Sinauer Associates, In. and W. H. Freeman and Company. LIFE has always shown students how biology works, offering an engaging and coherent presentation of the fundamentals of biology by describing the landmark experiments that revealed them.

As in previous editions, Life 5/e shows biology not as a collection of facts, but as a dynamic discipline. The student's understanding of biological processes is developed through effective pedagogy, using a smooth narrative, rich experimental contexts and spectacular art, all backed by impeccable scholarship. The genetics coverage has been expanded by new co-author and genetics specialist, David Sadava. The accompanying CD-ROM embraces more than 1,500 topics and includes over 140 animations, and 600 illustrations and electron micrographs.

WARNING: this is not the whole textbook! This textbook is sold both as one book and also as THREE volumes. No course requires only one volume, so be absolutely certain it won't be advantageous to simply buy the whole text as one book.

My apologies if the above is obvious to you. Somehow, it wasn't obvious to me and I ended up having to buy all three volumes separately.

This textbook was used for 7.013 (first semester biology) at MIT when I took it Spring '08. Therefore, you may have to purchase this or a similar text regardless of what I say. If you have a choice, however, I'd say try another text and tell me how that goes. This one is at best mediocre. I thought the author took too long to get to the point in each topic, which made it a laborious read. Because of this, I think the length of this text could be reduced by a quarter of its current length and still successfully cover the same topics.

I have reviewed Campbell, Curtis& Barnes, and other fine textbooks in biology, as a teacher and a scientist, I find Purves, etal; Life , A Science of Biology as the best textbook on the market. His clear explanation of the concepts with bright, colorful pictures have helped my students to understand biological concepts for the AP Bio exam as well as preparing them for college. The questions after each and every chapter plainly incorporate the chapter's lessons as well as inclusion of the continuity of life that is important in all biology teaching. His book had already included the new domain designations and included the reasons as why they were being changed. ( As this was the infamous #3 question on the AP Bio exam.) As a trained molecular biologist, I am finally satisfied in the explanation of the molecular process of life. Again his use of good solid pictures help to re-enforce a difficult concept. I also know that MIT uses this book as well as Harvard, I urge every biology teacher professor to at least have this in their personal library.

I graduated from college in the early 70's with a B.S. major in Physics. Having retired from the business world, I recently discovered the absolutely wonderous advances in what I believed to be the "non-physical" sciences. Hooray for E.O.Wilson's concept of concilience!

I'm studying Biology using "Life" and its associated website. What amazing fun! I love this book and it is the best textbook I've ever studied. This book is not a good "read" - it's a great book to study!

The book is great. Got it to teach an intro bio course and have wound up using it to study the basics for molecular biology and animal behavior. Really touches on many disciplines of science, sometimes briefly and even in depth.

Jorad
perfect condition!

FEISKO
needs to provide a little more detail on some subjects (even though author is limited on writing based on how [much] publishers want them to write); overall, great book for a Principles of Biology course

Zut
I love this book. It has nice concise descriptions. It gives a detailed overview of the subjects it covers. I might finally learn photosynthesis!

Wonderful text with GREAT additional resources. There is a wonderful website that covers key topics, enables you to quickly print out objectives, vocabulary; and even has web tutorials. This supplemental material is great for people who are visual learners, as they have plenty of animations to help you understand the topics. Would highly recommend any text from this publisher.
