While biology and other sciences are currently undergoing revolutionary changes particularly with reference to the scope of our understanding, I rather doubt an instructor of an introductory course in biology will find the material presented here as dated. I have to share that in my opinion the explanations provided in this book are at an appropriate level for non-majors.
Consistency rating: 5 Throughout the book has a straightforward organization that will facilitate learning by students. Terms are used consistently throughout the text. Modularity rating: 5 As mentioned above, I think one advantage of this book is that it has adopted a modular approach to topics, which allows the instructor to pick and choose which topics will be included without having to worry that the student must have read the preceding section to make sense of a given reading.
So, for instance, one might decide to have students read one of the sections under Chapter 10 Biotechnology and not worry about assigning only the introduction and the section on genomics and proteomics. I typically like to have students study ecology interactions among organisms and their surroundings over short periods of time prior to studying evolution, which I portray as the long term consequences of these interactions occurring longer periods of time with reference to shifting gene frequencies.
Interface rating: 5 I personally prefer a paper copy to the electronic environment, but I have to admit this was quite easy to navigate and I did like the use of occasional animations to explain difficult concepts.
Grammatical Errors I found no grammatical errors. Cultural Relevance rating: 2 The history in this book is pretty standard, brief and somewhat simplistic in its interpretation. For instance, there is a missed opportunity in Section 9.
She is mentioned, but only as the source of x-ray crystallography photographs and data. In general, this textbook does not have a discussion of cultural issues and consequently anyone identifying a discussion of science and culture as a learning objective would need to supplement the text. This is not a text that would overtly encourage students to question the stereotype that for the most part, science is the playground of wealthy white male geniuses living in the past.
