あらすじ・解説

Every human is composed of an amazing assortment of cells and tissues that carry out myriad functions necessary for sustaining life. In this series of lectures, Professor John K. Young of the Howard University College of Medicine takes audiences through the microscope on a fascinating journey of discovery into the world of cells and tissues, where a complex scheme of activity is taking place all the time, literally just beneath the surface.

In clear, concise language, Professor Young explains the basic categories of cells and tissues and then delves into their specialized functions, whether it be for muscle cells and nervous tissue or the cells of reproductive organs and the highly unusual entities known as "extreme" cells. Finally, Professor Young wraps up the lectures with a topic of universal interest-the death and aging of cells.

Packed with information, for serious readers

I chose this book because I wanted to learn more about cells and general modern biology. I had some credits left from previous months and bought the book out of an impulse after listening to the sample. Boy, was I rewarded. This book is simply packed with interesting and deep science. It must be very hard to teach such a subject without using any Pictures or Charts, but Prof. Young does a marvelous job, going through the material twice, first with a quick overview, and then a second path in depth. This is a great book for a serious reader. Do you *really* want to know? Then this book is for you. I have a non-biology science background, and that was enough to quickly get hooked and to not get lost. I am sure I will take a second pass in a couple of weeks, just to make things settle more solidly into my brain.

Kudos to Professor Young for a great Job, I wish there would be more books like this.

Good information

Good information but an off-putting nervous lecture style, in my view. Taken as a whole, it was very informative.

A&P 101 Head Start

I'm currently taking A&P 101. Listening to this book gives me a head start for class. I have a much better understanding of cells, tissues, . . . than I would have from class alone.
