Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

George Johnsons textbook has often been considered a student favorite. Dr. Johnson has written this non-majors textbook from the ground up to be an engaging and accessible learning tool with an emphasis on "how things work and why things happen the way they do". This authoritative textbook features a straightforward, clear writing style and a wide variety of media assets to enhance the content of the textbook.

The strength of the fourth edition is the integration of many tools that are designed to inspire both students and instructors. The multi-media package for the new edition stretches students beyond the confines of the traditional textbook to include high interest video clips and animations of key biological concepts.
