Product Description

With more than 100,000 copies sold of his self-published book, The Biology of Belief, Bruce Lipton teams up with Hay House to bring his message to an even wider audience. This book is a groundbreaking work in the field of new biology, and it will forever change how you think about thinking. Through the research of Dr. Lipton and other leading-edge scientists, stunning new discoveries have been made about the interaction between your mind and body and the processes by which cells receive information. It shows that genes and DNA do not control our biology, that instead DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our thoughts. Using simple language, illustrations, humor, and everyday examples, he demonstrates how the new science of Epigenetics is revolutionizing our understanding of the link between mind and matter and the profound effects it has on our personal lives and the collective life of our species.

5-0 out of 5 stars It's the Environment Stupid!
I love that line from the book.

This book explains, from a scientific perspective, the mind-body-spirit connection and its relationship with our environment.It's not exactly a scientific work, and it isn't a book on spirituality either.

The character of our lives is based on how we perceive it. Genes are blueprints - the environment is the contractor that reads the blueprints. We are not victims of our genes.
On correlation vs. causation, Dr. Lipton states it is one thing for a gene to be linked to a disease and entirely another to cause a disease. If there are exceptions to a theory, it means the theory is incorrect. But as usual, accepted scientific paradigm trumps the evidence. The result? More pharmaceuticals for treatment of "environmental" conditions.

He makes great analogies in the section on Growth and Protection, explaining how stress affects our immune system and our growth.The section on Conscious Parenting goes into how to create a more nurturing environment for children, but he does not explain how, as adults, we can change our core beliefs... our subconscious.He touches on this in the Epilogue, and the websites listed are pretty informative.

Great book!

4-0 out of 5 stars Solution to Reprogram your Subconscious after reading the book
The book makes you understand the need to deal with your hidden beliefs, but you want the solutions as well. It took me 20 years to master subconscious reprogramming in myself and others. The first step was to identify these beliefs that no longer are needed. This is done with the help of kinesiology. Then I learned to reprogram limiting subconscious beliefs with desired corrections. This type of work required a lot of time to learn, but now I can read subconscious mind of any person as an open book, provided I get permission to work with this person. I identify the person's sabotaging beliefs and reprogram them on conscious and subconscious levels with the correct wording suggested by the person. It is very important that one feels good about the right choice of wording for the subconscious. At the beginning I thought that this work could only be done in person. But after a while I started working with people at a distance with the same great results.
I later on found in quantum physics explanations on why and how it was possible. Some of the people I worked with even were located in other countries. I prefer to use skype towitness the person's reaction when this reprogramming is completed. There is an inner transformation and a shift in consciousness that accompanies this work. If you need help with the solutions after reading the book, you can contact me at joyful108@yahoo.com. Best of luck, Bela.

2-0 out of 5 stars Interesting but...
I thought this book would be about how people form beliefs from a biological point of view.
While I did like a lot of his non spiritual ideas, his criticism of darwin / darwinians is unfounded as darwin fully explained how important environment is in evolution if you actually read "on the origin of species", and darwin knew nothing of genes or DNA so why slam darwinian evolution ? because it doesn't need a creator or spiritualism.

1-0 out of 5 stars Wow that was ignorant.
The person writing this text either has no idea what he's talking about, or he's lying through his teeth. I imagine it's a mixture of the two.

The process of cloning is entirely dependent on DNA generating the structure of biology. If DNA did not do this, cloning would not work. Today, clones are made quite frequently. Recently, a new human-made life form was announced at TED. The life form was made by injecting artificially coded DNA into an undeveloped bacterial cell. The new life form would not have grown, if DNA did not produce biological features. The life form, however, grew well, as expected. Modern day gene therapy is also based on DNA making our bodies. Many forms of SIDS has been cured due to gene therapy, and they form exquisite examples of how modern biology is on the right track.

The writer of this book throws thirty years of established research, effective medicine, and engineering out the window in the book's description.

The writer does not know what the word energy, means. Energy is the capacity to do work. A thought always has positive energy, regardless of what it's about. The writer doesn't even know the definitions of modern middle school physics.

The writer quite often claims that some person did some experiment that did something, without telling us his source. A much better book, that actually details the biology of thought and belief ( Adams and Victor's Principles of Neurology, Ninth Edition (Adams & Victor's Principles of Neurology) ) outlines a comprehensive list of each of their sources at the end of each chapter. This book has no backing, and the writer knows it. Nothing in this book is "cutting edge", or even well researched.

Much of this book is based on religious superstition. Humans have always thought that their thoughts have effected their surroundings. That's how myths of telekinesis, and the like, started. This notion has been completely abandoned by science, because it doesn't help progress anything. Science has spent trillion of dollars and man hours developing machines that can communicate across the globe and can heal quicker then people three decades ago could even imagine. If we had that capability already in our brain, science would be all over it.

This book doesn't go into any detail, leaving most assertions at "X causes Y, isn't that cool". At no point is X causing Y ever demonstrated. The book at no point explains how our thoughts, currently explained to be patterns of electrons in the brain, could ever cause anything described in the book to happen.

This book, much like it's predecessors, prays on the pubic's ignorance of quantum physics. There is no such thing as quantum biology, and no applications in quantum mechanics have ever been used in biology. The closest thing so far has been in test of the de broglie wave of retro viruses. No quantum physics has ever been applied to any experiments involving humans. That would actually be illegal, considering the strict standards of lab tests for modern medicine. This doesn't just apply to drugs.

As a note to anyone reading this; pick up a book on quantum physics. Your life will be enriched by it, immensely. How about Quantum Mechanics. An Introduction (Volume 0)? I'm particularly fond of it.

This book appeals to emotion on a huge scale. Very often he uses the word "dogma" to describe science. He never explains how it's actually dogma. Scientific findings are very often disputed, and most hypothesis are outright rejected. Science is based on what we observe to be true. Why would anyone want to have a complex taxonomic tree to describe earth life? I definitely wouldn't, but it's there, so science needs it.

This is also confusing, since he puts quantum physics (albeit his dishonest interpretation) on a pedestal, despite research in biology and quantum physics being published by the same people, being the NAS, the AAAS, and like organizations. He just claims that these evil scientists and scientific organizations are not allowing new findings to be made, but he never tells us who these scientists and organizations are. It reminds me of how a conspiracy theorist says that various things are caused by the government, despite not ever addressing what a government actually is.

Additionally, he acts as if quantum physics is new. Quantum physics pretty much halted in development after the 50s, and it's successor, particle physics, hasn't had any major developments since the late 70s. The LHC is trying to change this, but progress is slow. He's acting as if quantum theory is this new science that we know little about. It's not.

As a last note, Bruce lipton has his degree in developmental biology. He has never been involved in research, outside that of the development of muscle cells. His research ended in 1992, meaning he's not even a working biologist. He has never been involved with any neurological or genomic research, meaning that he has no qualifications to be talking about what he is in this book. He's using his PhD in an irrelevant field to try and act as if he's an authority. I don't like liars very much.

Don't buy this book. The person who wrote it doesn't deserve your money. The kind of thinking promoted in this book is dangerous for any truth seeking society. This book does not promote science, it promotes superstition.

5-0 out of 5 stars It's about time someone set the record straight.
This book makes sense to everyone, escpecially those who have had some in depth biology college courses and have kept pace with scientific advances in cellular biology. This is another example of how science and spirituality are merging closer in this age of Dwapara Yuga, despite the efforts of the Kali Yuga hangers on who try to discredit this inevitable merger.

5-0 out of 5 stars AP Biology Cliff Notes
I purchased this for my granddaughter, a junior, taking AP Biology in high school.She was so excited after reading the Cliff Notes for AP Biology because she could finally understand what she was learning.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Terrific Resource
This was a great review and study guide for the AP Biology exam. It was clear, concise, and covered everything I needed to know. I got a 5.

5-0 out of 5 stars DAT prep
Great summary for Biology. I'm an accountant going back for dental. This book was a great summary of biology topics. It has plenty of practice tests with good examples. If you can do everything in this book, you probably don't need college biology 1&2.

I try to save money w/ test prep by studying free off of websites and out of my old book. This is the best, most succinct resource I've found for preparation for a test (I'm sure also great for MCAT, AP, CLEP, etc). One regret: not getting AP Org Chem (didn't have as many reviews, but in hindsight I would have bought it).

Also check out Cliffs AP Chemistry...just as good.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great choice for studying!
If you are searching for a review book or the AP Biology exam, look no further.. you need to buy this book right now!

I recently took the Biology exam and this book has helped me learn material I was not taught in class, or review material I had forgotten. What I like about this book is that every section was not overcrowded with information. All the chapters were short (6-40 pages about) and to the point. All of the topics were explained perfectly that I was never confused about what I was reading. The book comes with useful sample questions at the end of each section so you can test yourself, and the questions and explanations are very helpful. I actually saw one question from the review book on my AP Exam, so you know their information is reliable.

The one thing I did not like about this book was the lack of figures, or graphics. I am a visual learner and I would have preferred more descriptive pictures, such as the ones in my actual AP BIO textbook, to better understand concepts. The figures they had were vague.

Anyway, they did a great job at enlightening me about plants, a subject I did not learn in class but was prevalent on the exam. Please choose this book for its benefits are enormous and you are guaranteed a 4 or a 5 if you read this book in depth.

5-0 out of 5 stars My Happy Review =)
I've been taking notes on this book, and you only take notes on the important things. I've been taking notes on almost EVERYTHING. This is probably one of the best sources to learn AP Bio from. It's full of stuff that you will NEED to know and it doesn't skimp on the details. It is also a quick way to learn and is very interesting. I highly recommend this book. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars good book
very power for the same of this books, I hope this book can help you too...

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Book!But this shouldn't be your only study tool!
So I got this book about 2 months before the AP test.I opened it like 5 days before the AP test and started cramming and cramming non-stop.Please do not use this approach unless you find the world of Biology fascinating.The five days with this book, I must say, were torturous but very helpful.Now you need to understand that I probably have the worst AP Biology teacher imaginable, he covered 30% of the topics and did pointless labs the entire time.Anyway about the book, it is very well organized, no mistakes, errors, and probably the best substitute for a textbook.I got a 4 on the AP exam using this book and some released exams in 5 days work.

Now for many of you who can't settle for anything but a 5, I will tell you what you need.

Getting a 5:

- Get this Book
- Get released exams (easy to find, try this site:[...]) and do them all.
- Read this book once throughout the year.Then read the book again 3 weeks before the test until the test day.
- I can't stress the importance of not slacking off like I did. If you have a good AP Bio class (unlike me), do all the homework!

After the test, I felt pretty confident about getting a 5.I think not enough detail in the Free Response messed me up or something.But I am happy with a 4.I know a lot of people who would trade a 5 day study session to get out of a semester of freshman Bio.But getting that 5 would have got me out an elective Bio semseter UGHHH.....

oh.. and yea.. DONT GET CLIFFSAP unless you think you are already sweet at Biology.This book has a lot more important detail.

Getting you a 5 will only cost like the 13 bucks you pay for this book and a couple hours finding all those exams at that site (just make an account and start asking, people are really friendly.)

3-0 out of 5 stars quizes are helpful
the book gives the explanation in a good way [as a summary]. The most useful think about the book is that it gives you two practice test and a diagnostic test [made up of ap questions], it also has free-response questions =)

5-0 out of 5 stars You can score a 5 easily with this book
Now suppose your English essay writing is just average, and you keep getting B's in your AP Biology class (using Campbell's Biology). You do not need to worry. Just use Barron's AP Biology half an hour a day for 2 months and you will see the perfect result.

5-0 out of 5 stars It Couldn't Have Been Any Better
English is my second language and got a 5 in the exam. Before I got this book in April, I always had 3 in practice exams (finals at school). In class, my grades were C (first semester) and B (second semester).

The best thing about this review was that it was well-organized unlike many other reviews that the topics were all-over. This review started off with diagnostic test that had higher standard than the AP exam and finished off with answers in detail. In every chapter, it had enough graphs and figures to remember the detail figuratively rather than memorizing word-for-word. (Someone said that the number of diagrams was superfluous but I learnt much quicker with detail AND diagrams) For every important terms, it was in bold or italics so that I was more aware of what I was expected in the exam. The chapters finished off with multiple-choice questions which I knew whether that chapter was dead easy or I needed to reread the chapter pedantically. There were also few chapters that clarified the nature of the essay scoring. (The essay part can make a huge difference to your grade as an average AP Biology Free Response score is 3 out of 10). Also, the two model tests at the end are difficult but are helpful in the actual exam. (They are not confident booster) I got between 3 and 4 in the model test but managed to find the exam much much easier with a 5.

This is an excellent review book anyone struggling with AP biology. If you have the determination to engage in reading paragraphs and writing practice essays, this book can endorse you to get the highest grade in the exam.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Biology Book on the Market
This book is simply the best. In terms of depth of the covered material, fluidity of the writing, and the level of interaction that it achieves with the reader, you really can't beat it.

2-0 out of 5 stars The Idol of Evolution
AP Edition Biology by Neil A. Campbell and Jane B. Reece (Pearson/Benjamin Cummings, 7th Edition, 2005).

Before getting into critical aspects, let me say some good things about this book.

First, some of the illustrations, pointing to marvelous complexity, are particularly noteworthy. Look, for example, at the molecular machine in figure 9.14 (p. 171). The same can be said concerning the flagellum diagram on page 536 (Figure 27.6), and look at the marvelous intricacy of the human placenta (p. 980). How did that self-giving organ evolve? It never evolved. It was created by our marvelous Creator. The blood of mother and child had to be kept separate from the beginning. Look at the creative artistry in accomplishing that task. Yes, and before you complain that I brought in the God-word, let me warn you that the authors do the same.If they can diminish God, then I can praise Him.

There is also something else on that last page (980) worthy of commendation. Though the creature in the womb is labeled a "fetus," it is obvious from the pictures that the babies inside are humans worthy of protection. Even the authors, on the very next page, label a baby inside as being an "infant"! Good for them. It is about at that stage of the p. 981 illustration, by the way, that American doctors can insert something into the skull and suck out the infant's brain. It's called partial-birth abortion--and should obviously be banned!

Now where do the authors talk about God?

The authors talk about God on page 439, where they say that the "Old Testament account of creation ... holds that species were individually designed by God and therefore perfect." This representation, however, is simplistic and is offered without context. First, they are wrong to use the word "species." The Biblical word is "kind," which they seem to assume is equivalent to "species." It is not. Some evolutionists, for example, may separate wolves (Canis lupus) as being a different species from dogs (Canis lupus familiaris). Both, however, biblically speaking, can be seen as belonging to the canine-kind. Something similar could be said about cats, horses, cattle, and finches.

Many creationists affirm significant variability within a "kind." Darwin spoke of different finch beaks, but, biblically speaking, all may be of the same "kind."

Additionally, the authors' phrase "and therefore perfect" may suggest to students that naïve creationists would expect to see perfection today, but this is untrue and without context. Genesis also talks about the rebellion of man and the resultant corruption attending that fall. Creation scientists who believe the Bible are well aware of corruption, disease and death. They know that there is much imperfection.

Evolution trumps the Trinity?

The authors also seem willing to substitute their own worshipful words for Christian concepts. For example, Christians believe the Trinity accounts for the unity/diversity dynamic we see in creation. In place of the Trinity, however, the authors account for unit/diversity by pointing to their idol, "evolution." They write: "How can we account for life's dual nature of unity and diversity? The process of evolution ... illuminates both the similarities and differences among Earth's life" (p. 14). Evolution thus substitutes in the place of God.

There is even a heading on the next page: "Evolution accounts for life's unity and diversity." It almost personifies evolution! The authors are wrong, however; the Trinity accounts for unity/diversity in all creation.

Choose against "creating"

Notice, also, on page 19, the challenge: "Explain why `editing' is better than `creating' as a metaphor for how natural selection acts on a population's heritable variation."

Notice how the authors are training students away from "creating" (a notion not far removed from "creation") in the direction of evolutionism. There is an irony here, however, for it rightly implies that naturalselection has no creative power. It can only edit (sort out) from organisms already existing, but how, we might ask, did all the "creating" from ooze to "youz" happen? Natural selection is powerless to create a new feature (a wing, flipper, or chrysalis); it can, at best, only select from!

The authors even come out of their religion-of-naturalism closet by saying the following: "the limitations of science are imposed by its naturalism--its seeking of natural causes for natural phenomena." By what right, however, do they impose religious "naturalism" onto science? Do the same people look at a computer and demand that we only allow non-intelligent causes for the computer's existence?

Perhaps the greatest of modern scientists, Isaac Newton, had no problem giving God the credit for all the order he saw in the universe. Why should naturalists force Newton to submit to their foolish rules? Naturalists are like children--

But is it really fair to say that evolution is an idol?

The authors practically say as much. On page 27, they write that "Evolution" is biology's "core theme." In fact, after every one of its 55 chapters, there is an "Evolution Connection" question or paragraph. For example, at the end of chapter 23, the authors ask: "How is the process of evolution revealed by the imperfections of living organisms?"

Such is an extremely biased question. It suggest the possibility that there might be in the fossil record organisms that are only partially formed (as in imperfect)--a partial limb or wing, for example. Well, the fossil record does not record such. What we do see are living but mutated organisms that are blind, lame, or cancerous. Such, however, represent a loss in the genetic makeup. Following the curse of our first parents, things have been running down. My wife, for example, developed leukemia, but the doctors knew this represented a loss from perfection--a degeneration from healthy ("perfect") blood.

Another "Evolution Connection" paragraph is found at the end of chapter 8 (p. 159). It asks the students how to critique "the anti-evolutionary `argument from design,'" but where in the entire book have the authors intended to give students arguments "for" design? They do, however, let some slip in unwittingly. For example, the authors , in a previous chapter, wrote: "We can think of the Golgi (apparatus) as a center of manufacturing, warehousing, sorting, and shipping." What exactly is this apparatus? It's in every cell of our body! Imagine your "simple" cells "manufacturing, warehousing, sorting, and shipping"? If that was not designed, how did all that sorting and shipping ability pop out of a puddle?


To their credit, the authors spent a good amount of time talking about Creation Scientist Gregor Mendel. Of course, I did not see anywhere where they identified him as such, but Nigel Williams in Current Biology (October 14, 2003) said that "Once Gregor Mendel is placed back into the intellectual landscape that he would himself recognize," he would have "seen The Origin of Species as a challenge to his own worldview."

Mendel's ideas, in fact, were essentially ignored for 72 years, because they represented a challenge to Darwin's ideas. Now, Mendel's ideas have been added to Darwin's, but Creation Scientist Mendel knew that there were limits/boundaries to diversity. By way of contrast, Darwin essentially saw no limits--ooze can evolve into "youz." In fact, the authors affirm this explicitly on page 633: "All animals share a common ancestor."

What about Darwin's ego?

I am pleased that the authors put in this quotation from Darwin: "Your words have come true with a vengeance ... so all my originality, whatever it may amount to, will be smashed" (p. 443). Darwin was racing to beat Wallace to the evolution finish-line. These words of Darwin suggest that he was not as much concerned that "truth" get out but for who got the credit for originating it.

There is an irony, however, for according to Loren C. Eiseley, Benjamin Franklin Professor of Anthropology and the History of Science at the University of Pennsylvania before his death, "the leading tenets of Darwin's work -- the struggle for existence, variation, natural selection, and sexual selection -- are all fully expressed" in a paper written by creationist Edward Blyth in 1835.

There is good reason to believe Darwin knew and likely read Blyth's articles, but Darwin did not credit Blyth for the natural selection idea. As a matter of fact, few if any creation scientists have problems with "natural selection," but as we have already seen, natural selection cannot produce a new presence in an organism. It only selects from what is already there!


The authors may be ignorant of Sedimentologist Guy Berthault's experiements, for they wrote: "The relative sequence of fossils in rock strata tells us the order in which the fossils were laid down" (p. 517). Berthault, however, has demonstrated that items in upper layers can be laid down before items in lower layers due to the horizontal movement and deposition of water, as in rivers laying down delta deposits.

Essentially all fossils are found in sedimentary rock. Though index fossils can be found over very wide areas, I am not aware of any place in the book where the authors consider the possibility of a global flood drowning and burying billions of plants and animals in layers of sediment which washed up over land as the rising waters intermittently deposited layer over layer with 12-hour intervals of ever ascending high tides due to the cyclical pull of the moon's gravity. Marine fossils are even found on the tops of mountains!

But I like the fact that the authors affirmed, on page 528, that all land masses at one time were connected. Not only does the notion find possible biblical support, but the splitting apart of land masses could account for the separation of animals into isolated groups. Following a global flood, land masses could move more quickly due to less friction.


The authors have swallowed the millions/billions-of-years myth hook line and sinker. For example, the authors speak of "3 billion years" on page 47 and the "3.8-billion-year story of life on Earth" on page 512. They also base this upon "radiometric dating" (p. 517), but many chronometers clash with the long-ages concepts. Helium, for example, in deep granite challenges the conventional, radiometric dating of rocks. Its leak-rate from zircon crystals points to an earth only thousands of years old, not billions. Thus, two different readings relative to rock-age in the very same rock strongly suggest that at least one is wrong.

Radiohalos are rings of color formed around microscopic bits of radioactive minerals in rock crystals. They are fossil evidence of radioactive decay. "Squashed" Polonium-210 radiohalos indicate that Jurassic, Triassic, and Eocene formations in the Colorado plateau were deposited within months of one another, not hundreds of millions of years apart as required by the conventional time scale. There are many more reasons for holding to a YEC view. Persons who would like to receive 50 reasons may ask for a "pdf" attachment of Reasons to Affirm a Young Earth. Write to paulhumber@verizon.net.

Evolution Faith Tramples on Biblical Faith

The authors write: "Earth and the other planets of the solar system formed about 4.6 billion years ago, condensing from a vast cloud ... that surrounded the young sun." In other words, Earth came into existence after the sun, but were the authors there? Was anyone there--except God? He created the sun on Day 4, after the earth! Should we believe finite man or infinite God?

No Pasteur!

Though the authors speak of Stanley Miller's pathetic 1953 experiment on page 59 and more extensively on page 513, they apparently have omitted any reference to Creation Scientist Louis Pasteur in their entire, 1231-page book. The Index has 50 pages, but Pasteur is not listed! He "is remembered for his remarkable breakthroughs in the causes and preventions of diseases. His discoveries reduced mortality from puerperal fever, and he created the first vaccine for rabies and anthrax. His experiments supported the germ theory of disease. He was best known to the general public for inventing a method to stop milk and wine from causing sickness, a process that came to be called pasteurization. He is regarded as one of the three main founders of microbiology.... His body lies beneath the Institute Pasteur in Paris in a spectacular vault covered in depictions of his accomplishments in Byzantine mosaics." See the Wikipedia article on Pasteur ([...]).

Why might the authors have a bias against Pasteur? I believe it is because his scientific experiments strongly supported the notion that life comes only from life, but the scientific establishment, ruling God out by their determined and religiously held naturalism, want to believe, in the face of all odds to the contrary, that life somehow evolved spontaneously!


Though the authors know the cell is not simple, they persist in wanting to suggest simplicity in relation to living cells. On page 94, for example, they wrote: "the cell is the simplest collection of matter that can live." The words, though somewhat misleading, may actually be true, and the authors even display on pages 100-101, the amazing complexity of the cell. On page 513, however, they revert to "very simple cells," but there never was a "very simple cell"--period.

Second Law?

The authors are aware that the Second Law of Thermodynamics challenges evolutionary theory. The Law says that throughout the entire universe things are running down--not building up. Metal rusts, water runs downhill, and life dies. Thus, the authors try to fight against this fact by saying, "The evolution of biological order is perfectly consistent with the laws of thermodynamics" (p. 144). Below that, they refer to "the diffusion of a substance across a membrane." Are you convinced yet?

The Word!

In Dr. John Sanford's book, Genetic Entropy, he wrote: "These small molecules make up the individual steps of the spiral-staircase structure of DNA. These molecules are the letters of the genetic code, and are shown symbolically as A, T, C, and G. These letters are strung together like a linear text. They are not just symbolically shown as letters, they are very literally the letters of our instruction manual. Small clusters or motifs of these four molecular letters make up the words of our manual, which combine to form genes (the chapters of our manual), which combine to form chromosomes (the volumes of our manual), which combine to form the whole genome (the entire library)."

If the molecular DNA is made up of words, could it be that the Word Himself, who became flesh on the First Christmas (John 1:1,14) has His Name on the very DNA of the reader (as in you)? Suggestion: let's stop bowing our knee to Darwin/evolution/ooze-to-"youz" and lift our heart in praise to Jehovah Jesus, the Word who became one of us, the One who created us, and the One who went to the Cross so that we could experience BIO to the full (John 10:10).

This is one of the best purchases I made in a long time, and mostly due to the fact that I saved a lot of money. At my university book store, this textbook costs $155 used and $200 new, and for me to find it new on Amazon.com for $140 is just a wonderful deal for me. Also it includes some online study help.

Thank you!

4-0 out of 5 stars Student Study Guide for Biology, by Campbell and Reece
I recently bought this book for my daughter who already swears by Campbell Reece's Biology leviathan textbook so much so she would give it 6 stars if she could! She is in her penultimate high school year preparing Cambridge AS Biology which she intends to pursue next year at A2 Level and then at University. She tells me the study Guide is a good, well structured summary of the Campbell Reece textbook, perfect for quick refresher reviews of certain topics. She would definitely recommend it in conjunction with their textbook. Biology with MasteringBiology (8th Edition)

Product Description

For nearly a quarter century Molecular Biology of the Cell has been the leading cell biology textbook. This tradition continues with the new Fifth Edition, which has been completely revised and updated to describe our current, rapidly advancing understanding of cell biology. To list but a few examples, a large amount of new material is presented on epigenetics; stem cells; RNAi; comparative genomics; the latest cancer therapies; apoptosis (now its own separate chapter); and cell cycle control and the mechanics of M phase (now integrated into one chapter).

The hallmark features of Molecular Biology of the Cell have been retained, such as its consistent and comprehensive art program, clear concept headings, and succinct section summaries. Additionally, in response to extensive feedback from readers, the Fifth Edition now includes several new features.

It is now more portable. Chapters 1-20 are printed and Chapters 21-25, covering multicellular systems, are provided as pdf files on the free Media DVD-ROM which accompanies the book.* And for the first time, Molecular Biology of the Cell now contains end-of-chapter questions. These problems, written by John Wilson and Tim Hunt, emphasize a quantitative approach and the art of reasoning from experiments, and -they will help students review and extend their knowledge derived from reading the textbook. The Media DVD-ROM, which is packaged with every copy of the book, contains PowerPoint® presentations with all of the figures, tables and micrographs from the text (available as JPEGs too). Also included is the Media Player, which plays over 125 movies—animations, videos, and molecular models—all with voiceover narration. A new reader-friendly feature is the integration of media codes throughout the text that link directly to relevant videos and animations. The Media DVD-ROM holds the multicellular systems chapters (21-25) of the text as well.

By skillfully extracting the fundamental concepts from this enormous and ever-growing field, the authors tell the story of cell biology, and thereby create a coherent framework through which readers may approach and enjoy this subject that is so central to all of biology.

* There is also a reference edition of Molecular Biology of the Cell, Fifth Edition (ISBN 978-0-8153-4111-6) that contains Chapters 1-25 entirely in printed format.

I ordered my book on the 8/30/2010 and emailed the seller before I placed my order since they offered the problem book for free with the textbook. I didn't hear anything from the seller so I bought the book since it was available. Then two weeks passed and I didn't receive the books I ordered. I contact the seller again. That was when it contacted me telling me that the book was sold out and that they forgot to remove it from the list!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The reason why they didn't answer my first email, well because it went to junk mail!!!!!!!!!!
I am two weeks into my class, my exam is in two weeks and now I am limited to fewer more expensive options. I am upset and disappointed! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars AP Biology Flash cards
This book was in excellent condition and the service is really good. I like the Amazon.com services.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Useful for the AP Biology Exam <3
I loved these cards--they helped me ace the exam!

It's a good supplement to your textbook; but should not be used alone!

If anything, should be used as a review of the real deal-- your textbook and perhaps barrons AP Biology book.

Nevertheless (I being an avid reader of both Cambell & Barrons Bio), found these flashcards to be extremely helpful in reviewing for the AP Bio exam =)

4-0 out of 5 stars Good review tool
If you've ever taken an AP class before, you know the crazy periods of studying that occur right before the exam. Prep books, class notes, textbooks (heavy, oh god), the whole lot. Carried around everywhere.

This box set of flashcards is a very nice addition to study materials for the exam. I would recommend this set to anyone who is reviewing for the exam, but I did not find that is was useful for learning and last minute facts.

Here's a rundown: Inside the box are 500 flashcards. Each has a small hole in it, so you can slide a set on the included ring. The ring is NOT big enough to hold all 500, but you can easily put a whole larger topic (or a few smaller ones) onto it at one time.

The flashcards are not vocab flashcards, with one word on each side. The front has a concept, and the back has a couple of bullets of information. A couple even have diagrams, like the parts of the cell or a drawing of a dicot stem verses a monocot stem. You have to quint to see where a few of the arrows point, but it's not too bad.

As I saw it, the box set did a pretty decent job of covering all the major areas of biology. It even included a couple of cards on the labs that might be tested.

One thing to keep in mind is that these cards are really useful only if you already know the material. If you find that you don't understand a topic very well, and are looking to review materials to help you get that extra bit of information to put all the pieces together, then these flashcards will not help. The information is brief and devoid of in depth explanation like some of the study books have. If you need more of a 'mini-lesson', then I would suggest getting a real prep book. Barrons makes very thorough ones, but there are other types available.

In short, the flashcards are a good tool to help in preperation for the AP exam, but you definitely need to allow some time to work through all 500.

5-0 out of 5 stars bio cards are great!!!
My step son got them for Christmas and he loves them.They have helped him out alot!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the Two Top Flash Card Products for AP Biology
I agree with another reviewer that this is one of the top two flash card products for AP Biology; the other being AP Biology Flashcard Quicklet: Flashcards in a Book for Biology Students. I have used both and here is my review:
1. This Product: This is very good if you like loose cards. The order of the topics covered is rather random. Some cards are very brief, that is, may be for brevity. You have lot of space on the cards to write. There are enough number of cards. You should have already prepared from a Study Guide before trying these cards.

2. AP Biology Flashcard Quicklet: Flashcards in a Book for Biology Students. This is very good if you like flash cards in a book. The answers to the questions are very comprehensive and self-contained. The topics and cards are presented in a logical order. It's an excellent tool for a quick review if you have already prepared from a Study Guide. Because the cards are self-contained, you can use this book with any study guide or without any atudy guide. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars seems great
Arrived fine, won't know truly how it is until after the AP test. :)Seems helpful.

4-0 out of 5 stars AP Biology--5 steps to a 5
My son is very excited about having this book to help him study through the year.

5-0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended for all Students
This book is very lucid and very detailed. It has all key concepts tested on the ap bio test, as well. I have used many study aids over the years, but this is by far one of the my favorite. Not only does this book completely cover the material, but also summarizes everything at the end of the chapter.

The author also includes many pictures that clearly illustrate the topics at hand. Although some of the jokes are corny, it does lighten the subject for the reader-- not a solid block of text.

I highly recommend this book for students, who wish to do well on the ap test. This book will not disappoint.

5-0 out of 5 stars best ap bio book ever!!
Trust this book when it says you don't have to know every single detail of your textbook to get a 5. I did, and I did get a 5.

Let's just say I had no idea of how much I had to know for the exam, because I was taking an online course. I had no teacher to prepare me, so I decided to buy three review books for ap bio. Out of the 3 books, this was certainly the best. It gave me just what I needed: a complete, thorough, and fun to read review; practice tests that were extremely similar to the real exam; and it told me how much I had to get right in each section of the exam to get a 5.

The cliffs book was not nearly as good as this one, but the Princeton review was pretty good. So if you're thinking of getting more than one of these review books, my suggestion is 5 steps and Princeton review.

If you do a practice test on this book and do well, you can be sure you'll do just as fine in the real exam.

5-0 out of 5 stars Quick and Explanatory - Perfect for a 5
I bought this book 9 days before the exam. It's an easy read compared to the textbook and nicely sums up all of the important concepts. It also has a useful glossary in the back. Overall a really good book to use for a < 2 week review.
I'm nearly sure that I'm getting a 5

Edit: I got a 5. Knew it. Buy this book. ... Read more

Clearly written, good color pictures, wonderfully -drawn diagrams but "blah" end-of-chapter exercises and not a great review of the chapterSome of his " evolutionary" caloms seem to come -off as "just-so" stories .

5-0 out of 5 stars a MUST for any into Bio class or review of basics for A & P.
Get this book if you need to review Bio or you are taking an intro to Bio class or an A&P class for review.THis is one of the best of the Dummy Science series and I wish the A&P Dummy book was more detailed.If you have to help your teen with a high school Bio class and you need to review the Krebs cycle...this is your book!

Great purchase.Would not have made it through my online Bio class without it!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Interestingly good read
I wholeheartedly recommend the Biology for Dummies book to everyday people or prospective students in the subject matter. It provides a good review of biology down to the cells and the beginning of life continuing to the inner workings of the human body. I admit that I have not completed the book yet. It can be complex such as the Krebs cycle but keeps me interested enough to want to know more. My boyfriend, a self-proclaimed geek, is facinated with the details on life. We both enjoy learning about it through this book. ... Read more

Product Description

Essential Cell Biology provides an accessible introduction to the fundamental concepts of cell biology. Its lively writing and exceptional illustrations make it the ideal textbook for a first course in cell and molecular biology. The text and figures are easy-to-follow, accurate, clear, and engaging for the introductory student. Molecular detail has been kept to a minimum in order to provide the reader with a cohesive, conceptual framework of the basic science that underlies our current understanding of biology.

The Third Edition is thoroughly updated scientifically, yet maintains the academic level and size of the previous edition. The book is accompanied by a Media DVD-ROM with over 130 animations and videos, all the figures from the book, and a new self-test quizzing feature for students.

4-0 out of 5 stars Cell Bio, good in depth book.
Very good text book, goes into great detail of all cellular processes. Definitely better than any intro Bio book, or intro Cell bio book. DVD that comes with it is very helpful. Shipped fast and in great condition.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Purchase!!!
My book arrived earlier than I thought it would. It was in great condition just like new. The seller was prompt with responding to my emails. I am enjoying my purchase!

4-0 out of 5 stars Good, brief book with one minor issue.
I bought this book for my Cell Structure & Function course at Florida State. Overall, it's a good book, very easy to read, and explains pretty well. It does not cover the minute details, however. My only complaint about this book is its vague outline. What I mean is that the chapters are not really organized; the author sometimes abruptly goes from point to point, and you eventually get lost in the middle. That's why I gave it 4/5.

Editorial Review

Product Description
During the past four years, the field of developmental biology has begun a new metamorphosis. The Ninth Edition of Developmental Biology mirrors this shift with a wholly revised text, over 600 new literature citations, and substantial reorganization of content. The introductory section has been streamlined from six chapters to three one each on developmental anatomy, the mechanisms of gene regulation during differentiation, and cell cell communication during morphogenesis. Another new feature is the addition of short part openers that address key concerns in developmental biology. These provide an introduction to the subsequent chapters, telling the reader what to expect and placing that information into a specific context. Each chapter ends with a guide to Web-based resources relevant to that chapter s content, and the Ninth Edition is the first to include a glossary of key terms. Some of the new material in this edition includes: mesenchymal and induced pluripotent stem cells; the transdifferentiation of pancreatic cells; new data on sea urchin micromere specification; the mechanisms whereby Sry and Wnt signaling determine mammalian sex; the memory of cell fate during amphibian limb regeneration; how bats got their wings and how dachshunds got their short legs. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Good but lil lower quality than I hoped
This is a good book. The pages are all fine doesnt have lot of over writing or underlines. But my friend bought a book which was of lower price than this one and it is newer and a fresh book. I thought the more the price the better is the quality. Wel, But I wont say it is bad since I have a complete book without torn pages.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not the correct book
When I ordered this book it said ninth edition on the description and the ISP number was ninth edition as well.So when I received it in the mail and saw that it was the eighth edition I was pretty unhappy.I would not recommend this seller because who knows what you may receive.

3-0 out of 5 stars satisfactory
I'm a college student and bought this book for my developmental biology class. I thought this was a satisfactory book. I completely agree with the reviewer steven viscido; the book does, in fact, puts an extraordinary emphasis on details, but it does elaborate somewhat on concepts but not to the extent that it covers on details. I don't mind if there is too much detail, but the real issue I have is that sometimes when you are reading the book, you would get "lost" in whatever topic you are reading. As an anology, its like going into a forest that has trees with branches, and focusing too much on the branches would make you unconscious of the tree and if there is too much focus on the tree you would forget that you are in the forest. A similar type of thing in this book.
It does take an extra amount of will power to memorize all the details such as the proteins involved, stages, experiments, processes, etc. in every chapter. Nevertheless, I'm very much satisfied with this book, I learned a lot of wonderful things. I wanted to give this a 3.5 stars but unfortunately amazon won't let me.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book of biology
Fantastic book for the basics to the border of intermediate/advanced knowledge. This is a definite buy for anyone starting in the field and will be a valuable resource for a long time. For the most in depth information on some topics, more resources will definitely be needed, but is an excellent starting point.

There are a few specialized topics I wish it would have covered more (ERVs for example), however, for the overall general information about the interworkings of a cell, this book is invaluable and will be a first resource for most biological topics.

4-0 out of 5 stars Review for Molecular Cellular Biology
This book is much less wordy than other Biology texts.This time I actually read the book for class.

5-0 out of 5 stars Molecular Cell Biology
For some this may be a bit hard to understand as it gets into a LOT of detail over certain things, but it does have useful pictures and a variety of topics are covered. I found it amazing for explaining certain assays.

Please send me the book, its been more than a month.this is ridiculous, either refund me or send me the book.

5-0 out of 5 stars perfect condition, timely arrival
It's just what his instructor asked. It arrived very timely and in excellent condition. great value.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great review book + CD!
Covers a lot of concepts and provides plenty of practice with SIX AP bio tests.All the tests and the chapters are on the CD so you can have them on your laptop.Only two of the tests are in the book though.
Cliffs has essays and multiple-choice questions at the end of each chapter too.

Cons:No index! and few diagrams.
Pros:Worth it for all that test practice - if you have the time.

We used this along with Barron's 2010.The latter had 3 tests (1 diagnostic and 2 at the back) and is better for the diagrams and more user-friendly, spacious layout.

Don't forget to check out the collegeboard AP Bio links for past exam papers (essay questions).As you cannot practice with real past mcqs - these review books are invaluable. ... Read more

I was happy with this book. It came in on time and the quality was very good. Practically brand new w/ nothing written in it. I am now using it for my AP Bio class and it is a great help. I am satisfied w/ my purchase.

This study guide is excellent for reviewing AP Biology.I have even used it as a reference for Bio-II.The writers provide examples and engaging activities for reinforcement and review. Also the table of contents and layout of the book is appealing for the readers.

How can I review a product when I'm still waiting for it 1 month later? I can say that I will rate the seller with 0 star.

The seller had sent the book in time, which has been well kept and almostlike new. however the CD which comes along with the book was missing.

...This IS a condensed textbook, with great detail and review.THis is not intended to be an AP exam prep book, but it sure CAN be, it just has a LOT of detailed not required on the College Board examination.The concept maps and INTERACTIVE questions are the BEST review because I am a visual learner.As long as you're up to the challenge, be sure to check out this book, as well as an AP prep book (Cliffsnotes, Barron's, and Princeton Review).Peace and good luck. ...
