The Living World by George B. JohnsonIn some ways this is a good biology text for non-majors. The language is simple enough for a non-scientist, yet it is comprehensive and goes into sufficient detail to give a good understanding. There are a few mistakes (e.g., he defines a mole as a measure of weight, but in fact a mole is a measure of the number of atoms or particles). He also uses a bad analogy in describing the two strands of DNA as being mirror images of each other. This is misleading. I hope the 8th edition will correct these items.

In this basic concepts version of our very successful The Living World, George Johnson has provided the fundamentals to understanding biology in a more condensed format while still integrating analogies and current issues which makes science relevant to the student.

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 this textbook is the integration of many tools that are designed to inspire both students and instructors.
