Finally a microbiology textbook for a biology major that is written in a fresh new way! Sept. 11 2013

Format: Hardcover
I am using this textbook in my majors microbiology course this semester. It is an amazing book that has all the details that I need for my students but is not written in a dry manner. It uses the pedagogy that is so commonly found in non-majors books to help the student majoring in biology / microbiology see the connections between topics, the research behind the science, and applications to their life in the real world. The artwork is amazing and helps the students better visualize the structures and functions they need to learn. The WileyPlus homework that is associated with the textbook is a great way to help students practice what they are learning in class and be better prepared for exams. I am so happy that this book came to market as there was not much of a choice out there for a quality major microbiology textbook. All the other major microbiology textbooks follow the same theme of too much information in too much detail with very little real life application and connections. Finally, we have a microbiology textbook written by someone that not only understands the research behind the content, but can teach it as well!
and all the information in the book is wonderful. It is not too detailed though so I ... Nov. 10 2014

The book is as described and there is nothing wrong with the book. I purchased this for a class that I am taking, and all the information in the book is wonderful. It is not too detailed though so I would only recommend this textbook for people taking introduction to microbiology courses.

It's a good book but it needs some editing still. I sure the next edition will have the errors corrected.
