meh

I thought it would be helpful with my course and better than just reading a normal text book but the narrator has a very boring tone and the chapters are only numbered with no actual titles this wouldn't be so bad but the chapter numbers are out of sync and don't match up to the contents as listed in the introduction which makes it hard to find specific topics

Excellent overview of cellular biology

This book is for students who already have a general understanding of biology and chemistry. The average person will certainly learn just by listening but the authors assume you already know a decent portion of the cellular vocabulary. It gets right into the works of cellular function and contains a decent section overviewing the different histological techniques used to image cells. The narration is well done and only on a few occasions did the narrator mispronounce scientific words.

Aweful. TOO BASIC

This book reads more like a table of contents that a review of key facts. The detail of the Info covered is bellow that of a basic high school biology course. Don’t waste your time.
