With An Introduction to the Wonderful World of Biology, you'll learn about how cells do the work that supports life. You will also come to appreciate the cycle of life, how species interact with each other, the results of changes within the environment, and what makes up the biosphere. No matter if you are new to the subject or looking to expand your knowledge of biology, this book provides a unique perspective that will make biology come alive.

Maybe if I wanted to be a brain surgeon

I just didn't like this book...it concentrated tremendously on the brain... i was hoping to get a well rounded view of ALL the biological processes and features of humans plant and animals.., NOT IN THIS BOOK
