A few things of note: the book is aimed at biologists. This is not to imply that computer scientists or actuarial scientists will never understand this book, but rather implies that the approach to instruction is taken from the biological realm and then expanded to other related fields.
Also note that this is aimed strictly at comparative structural bioinformatics. While mentioned in the book, topics like transcription factors, x-ray crystalographic methods, or multi-cell signalling networks are best left for other books. This particular book, while touching on the subjects, does not go into much depth in these subjects. Personally, I feel this is all the better, allowing for a better primer of the subjects.
All in all, I have to say that this is one of the best books to date for an upper-undergraduate / graduate student to gain a working knowledge of Structural Bioinformatics. As such, I gladly rate this a 5 star book!
