"This is an introductory book on mathematical modeling in the bio-sciences. It is written for mathematicians as well as for life scientists. Simple models are presented, and previous knowledge of biology is not required for understanding the book. All the essential biological background is given in the text, while basic mathematical knowledge is sufficient for reading a large part of the book.
In each chapter, the material is organized in increasing order of complexity followed by exercises. Some of the exercises deal with the material of that chapter, while others are projects that extend the preceding material. Many chapters contain sections with suggestions for computing projects. Simulations are done in Matlab and computer code is included in the text...." (Miljenko Marusic, Mathematical Reviews)

It might be a decent reference book for understanding some basic modeling principles, but that's about all.
Some of the words and letters are really hard to understand, especially the sub-print, so it can get frustrating when you need to study or do homework.
Only buy if you need the book immediately.
