Praise for this book:

Books of this format are rare. Even more so are
concise books of this caliber that cover such a wide array of
biochemistry-related topics. This is the perfect book for students on the go, or
physicians in need of a brief refresher. It provides sufficient Information in
its summaries and rich illustrations to gain a basic understanding of any topic
it covers. The updated edition is certainly worthwhile as additional areas such
as blood clotting and the biochemistry of fatty tissues are now covered.
