Reviews - What do customers think about Introduction to Bioengineering (Advanced Series in Biomechanics, Volume 2)?
As an introduction it is a failure Mar 24, 2003
The title is misleading since the book is an uninspired collection of articles. The concept used for in the arrangement of the various chapters is poor. This is a cheap way to get published. This review is not intended as a general overview over the quality of the specific articles concerned which are, as they stand, in general interesting or even good. It is only that the editor has done a bad job in his choice and (noncoherent) compilation of material.
Complete, yet ovewhelming Aug 24, 2002
As the title of the book indicates, introduction to bioengineering gives an overview of the issues that bioengineers deal with such as tissue engineering, artificial bllod, biomechanics, etc. Nevertheless, the information is overwhelming, since basically the intro to bioengineering is a compilation of bioengineers journals. Certainly, the book gives you a pretty overview of what bioengineers do. However, it is also certain that you will struggle to understand the book if you are not familiar with biochemistry.
