"Molecular Biology Of the Cell 5th Edition is a good presentation of a very complicated subject. It is very clearly written although with any text of this type is it a slow process due to the immense amount of information that appears on every page. I would surmise that this text book is worth every penny both to college students studying the subject and for the amateur biologists. The sidebar material, in the form of diagrams and helpful text add much needed clarity to the material unlike other books of this type. My one and only complaint would be the fact that the last 5 chapters of the book are not included in print but instead are included in pdf format on the accompanying disk."
