This is a rare and brilliant textbook. Well-organized, clearly written, with great illustrations (which is hard to tell from the unassuming cover, but trust me, they’re great). I started at the beginning and read about half-way through, and I know other people who have done similarly. Human understanding in the field of molecular biology is a profound accomplishment, and this book (currently in its 4th edition) captures the profundity, the concepts, and all the glorious details without any pretense or wasted space. I cannot recommend this book highly enough to anyone interested in how life works.
