Item description for Life Sciences for the Non-Scientist by Viqar Zaman...

This illustrated exploration of the life sciences covers many topical issues, ranging from the origin of life to mad-cow disease. The illustrations include line drawings, mostly in colour, and many electron micrographs. Concisely written, it should be suitable for the non-specialist, as well as the undergraduate embarking on this field. The text also provides basic information on the major groups of disease-producing microorganisms, their defence by the body, and preventive measures such as immunization. It shows how closely integrated plants and animals are to one another in maintaining life on the planet. The ultimate message of the volume is the need to protect our ecosystem and the need for scientists to rise above the confines of race and nationality for the good of humanity.

Reviews - What do customers think about Life Sciences for the Non-Scientist?

Yeah Right!! Don't be fooled  Dec 9, 2007
For non-scientists huh... Who does this guy think he's writing for. Here's a flavour from page 16.

"Proteins synthesized in the rough endoplasmic rectilum migrate to the Golgi complex, where they get pacakaged into small vesicles. The vesicles are then transported to various sites where the proteins are needed. The cell cytoplasm also contains large vesicle carrying enzymes known as lysosomes, which are used for breaking down food and old organelles.....

The next sentence contains the words cytoplasm, eukaryotic, mitochondria. You get the picture!!

If you are a not a biologist and buy this book don't say you weren't warned. It may be a good book but it doesn't do what it says on the title.
