5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Reading for the Intelligent Reader
Schroedinger, one of the great physicists of the 20th Century, applied the knowledge he gained in his own discipline to analyze human life. Based upon lectures that he gave in the 1940s, this brief book contains Schroedinger's fascinating speculations on the nature of life, several of which have proven prophetic (including the discovery of DNA). The reader comes away with the joy of having shared in the workings of a great mind.
3-0 out of 5 stars A physicist's essay on a topic he cannot know as a scientist, only as a human being
I'm wondering why scientists are allowed to give their opinion as scientists about topics they know nothing about as scientists. The beginning of the title ("What is Life") sounds like if Schrodinger can claim anything about the difference between mind and matter as a pure consequence of physics. Too bad, as the rest of the title might make you think that there will be some discussion about why and whether there might be a difference between mind and matter. What remains of mind when you stick to the physics? That would be a very nice question to think about, if only this was the topic of the book...but it's not what is done here.

While I was reading the book I thought "this is pretty obvious stuff!" Then I began reminding myself that "If I see further, it's because I stand on the shoulders of giants."

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Purchase
There was no marks in the whole book, and the price was great.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best introductory text broadly covering the field
I would rate this as one of the best (if not the best) introductory texts in genetics.Comparing this to various other material that I've come across, Snustad and Simmons definitely exhibit superior aptitude in educational skills in this work.They have a firm grasp of what their target readers can understand and know how build up the readers' progressive comprehension while keeping the interest level high.This is the true mark of a well-constructed textbook.We all know how boring some texts can be, but I found myself always itching to read on and even go backward to review some of the concepts.The authors' use of simple language (unlike some other "introductory" texts) makes reading somewhat "light and fun" in contrast to some others who seem to not be as adept in communicating to "pre-PhD" students.5-0 out of 5 stars i want to review this book again

5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Collection of Essays
Donna Haraway will be remembered historically, if she's remembered at all, as the most misunderstood theorist of the twentieth century.Appealing to individuals used to simplistic rhetoric and discourse, due to her subject matters of feminism and science studies, Haraway uses langugae more apt to the deconstructions of Jacques Derrida.This connection is elided but important in understanding Haraway's project.5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliancies.
Donna Haraway's work in this collection continues to amaze me.Her intense critical engagement with the history of science is resolutely brilliant: she takes common conceptions of the body, objectivity, power, and 'nature' and pulls the rug of patriarchal metaphysics out from under them.These essays are concerned withunravelling origins myths, pointing out the pitfalls of political innocence, deconstructing our conceptions of the natural and the artefactual--you know, the usual.Her project is immense, but the she hones her points in each essay very well with dazzlingly astute political analyses and characteristic poetic phrases.If you're interested in oppositional antiracist feminist consciousness, Haraway's yr philosopher.

1-0 out of 5 stars Jaded and slanted
"Simians, Cyborgs, and Women" sounds as if it might be interesting to discuss the connections between the three conceps upon first glance.Feel free to read the opening portions of the book.They are representative of the majority of the book.If you are well-versed in fanatical feminist theories - and, more importantly, agree wholeheartedly with them - then you will enjoy the book immensely.On the other hand, if you are expecting a healthy discussion of the basis of, rationale for, and definitions of feminist theories, look elsewhere.The book is rife with shakey feminist theories which serve as premises to even still more outrageous conclusions, without any attempt to justify the premises themselves.As a result, it ends up a house of cards, without a strong foundation, puffed up far more than it ever should.I would have been more interested in seeing a well-structured analysis of the views underlying the arguments she makes.Alas, a search for such an analysis was in vain. ...

This book should be required reading for anyone serious about breeding quality dogs. Easy to read with lots of valuable information, but detailed enough for the experienced breeder.

5-0 out of 5 stars Book in great shape.Prompt service.
Book arrived promptly and in the condition described.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good book, ideal for students.
I used Nelson's Biological Physics textbook for a graduate level reading course in physics, and found it excellent for my needs. I haven't taken a biology course since high school, and although I have researched biological systems for some time, I have had a very fuzzy view of biological physics until recently.I was skeptical of a book that claims it is appropriate for students from second year undergraduate through graduate studies, but by using the Track 2 option, and following up some of the cited papers and suggested readings I found it to be quite suitable. Also, the text was well written, and easy to follow - which is ideal for independent study.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent introduction of complex processes.
This textbook was assigned for a mid-level course on climatic environments of the past, with a focus on the Quaternary Period. As a graduate student with an ecology undergraduate degree currently studying Quaternary vegetation dynamics, I found this to be an excellent introduction for those without a background in climatology while still having a lot to offer more advanced students.
5-0 out of 5 stars A long-awaited textbook......
I read this book twice, and wished I had had something like this available to me a few years ago, when I started venturing out into the unnumbered feedback loops, geochemical vagaries and regional idiosyncracies of Quaternary paleoclimatology, trying to form a general picture of it all. But this text isn't just about the Quaternary, mind you, this is a complete introduction to the main issues in Earth's climatology.2-0 out of 5 stars Not Good Enough!

Editorial Review

If you've ever wondered how and why people become robotically enslaved by advertising, religion, sexual fantasy, and cults, wonder no more. It's all because of "mind viruses," or "memes," and those who understand how to plant them into other's minds.This is the first truly accessible book about memes and how they make the world go 'round.Read more

Snakes on a plane: the book.
3-0 out of 5 stars Memes for dummies (3 1/2 stars)
Please be advised that this book does not take a cold calculated scientific approach at explaining memetics. Richard Brodie explains memes by recounting his personal discovery of memes, futhermore elaborating a fairly modest 'scientific' conclusion. I recommended this book to those merely curious about memetics. If you like 'guru-type' self help books you'll find that this book will suffice is explaining memes while expanding your consciousness. If you are looking for a scientific approach to memetics I would recommend Susan Blackmore's The Meme Machine.

Con la informacion de este libro puedes reconocer este meme y quitartelo de una vez por todas.

Let's keep this simple. Robert O.

5-0 out of 5 stars has it all
This is a wonderful book that not only covers the whole field of genetics, but does so with just the right amount of detail and reiteration so that you find yourself grasping the terms. Very clear drawings illuminate the text and take the complexity out of everything from Mendelian inheritance to mRNA transcription. Not once did I find myself wondering what something meant.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great Introduction, I want to know more!
I waited for almost five months for my local library to get this book in, even though I had been tempted to buy it.Now that I did check it out, I know for sure I need to buy this book.I have a college degree, in the arts, and became interested in genetics when my son was diagnosed with a rare genetic disease.I wanted to know more about genetics for that reason, and all the other books I've read seem heady, there's only a few books that really gave me a good understanding of it, from the beginning, without talking down.I couldn't put this book down, and now feel like I can tackle a lot more, this is a great foundation.It explains things very clearly without talking down to anyone, and it was fun to read.I highly recommend it.

2-0 out of 5 stars Poorly structured, badly written
This and Hartl and Clark's book are the standard textbooks for population genetics. I am an applied math/bio grad student working in this area. Hedrick's book contains a huge amount of information, but honestly I think it is poorly organized and often poorly written. Rather than a clear explication of the theory with examples, it is constructed more like a collection of related ideas, facts and examples thrown together to make loose rather confusing chapters. Population genetics is a tricky subject and Hedrick does not make much of an effort to communicate the ideas clearly. For example, in the mutation chapter, rather than say something like: here is the general problem, here are types of mutations, here are some mutation models with examples, here are some ways to estimate mutation and here are some case studies from the literature, he mixes all these things together presenting formulas and data in an jumbled, intermingled way that is not particularly easy to read. The result is that it is difficult to extract (for me) the essence of the concepts and summarize everything for myself. If you are required to use this text for a class, I highly recommend looking at other resources. Hartl's book's good, but slightly more basic. Gillespe's Concise Guide is also really good, but again, the subject is difficult and requires a good amount of mathematical background. To summarize, if you study pop gen, you should really probably read and own this book because of its ubiquity and the information contained within. However, don't be surprised when you find it sub par.

5-0 out of 5 stars A superbly presented and comprehensive introduction
A superbly presented and comprehensive introduction to population genetics as one of the fundamental underlying principles and processes of the evolutionary process, Genetics Of Populations is now published in a newly updated and significantly revised third edition. Author Philip W. Hedrick (Arizona State University) integrates theoretical issues with a clear and acceptable presentation of experimental population genetics with empirical data providing students and researchers with one of the most articulate and up-to-date texts available. Features new to this latest addition is a focus on data from genome projects that compare population samples to identify patterns of genetic diversity and genes that have been under selection. All of the individual chapters have been completely updated with the latest examples and approaches in this rapidly evolving field of study. Of special value for curriculum development are the new and updated tables, chapter exercises, end-of-chapter problems, art, photographs, featured researchers, extensive bibliography, and detailed index. Highly recommended.

This text-book deals with population genetic theory in great detail, without loosing sight of the basics. This makes it a good introduction in population genetics as well as a complete reference work. With chapters onevolutionairy and quantative genetics and numerous examples this bookdescribes the state of the art in population genetic research. Compared toHartl and Clark's Principles of Population Genetics, Genetics ofPopulations is more detailed and more clearly structured. Overall anexcellent book. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Proposals to Unanswered Questions
Stuart Kaufman's At Home in the Universe is a lay redaction his scientific hypotheses from his Origins of Order, a rich, fascinating, sophisticated, and complementary set of hypotheses added to Darwin's theories of evolution. For the moment, at least, they are the promising fruit of speculative or theoretical biological hypotheses (with physics, chemistry, geology, paleontology, mathematics, game theory, and economics thrown in), but they go a long way to filling in many of the gaps that strict Darwinists seem content to ignore. And some of his hypotheses, he readily admits, are heretical.
5-0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Science Applicable to Evolution and Business
Stuart brings the science of complexity and complex adaptive systems to a broad range of topics from evolution to business to learning curves. The book is masterly written to allow you to skim over the formulas without lossing the excitement or to dig into the technology to understand its broad application.

5-0 out of 5 stars A fascinating look at self-organization
We see a great deal of order in living systems.Where does this order come from?Is it entirely from natural selection?The author says no.He explains that much of the order we see in the world is spontaneous, such as in the symmetry of snowflakes, and that much of the order needed for the origination of life and in living organisms is of this spontaneous nature.

4-0 out of 5 stars What I got out of this book
I learned who the people closest genetically to Basques are. The French! Makes sense the French have a a portion of Basque country in their political nation of France. I'm of French background myself. French-Canadian that is.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book, if you can get through it...
This book is very hard to get through as someone with no backing in genetics or biology, but it is very interesting, and it shows how we humans are really just like a couple thousand breeds of dogs, all slightly different, but with the same ancestor, our distant ancestor though was probably no wolf. It is interesting when they mention the little unexplainable historical abnormalities (african genes and caucasian genes in latin american indigenous populations, perhaps?) that they see in the genes of some groups of humans.
5-0 out of 5 stars History and Geography of Homan Genes
This work, in hardback, is written with the advanced researcher in mind. The author is world famous for his pioneering efforts in identifying traits in particular traits in ethnic groups with unique genetic markers. The color plates in the index section can be helpful to those who know how to intrepret them.Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars A dissenting opinion....
In order to temper the unrestrained exuberance of the formerreviews, I think it is appropriate to point out what I believe are a couple of major shortcomings of this book.5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
This book is an excellent source for information on learning the bones, how to side them, and many other interesting aspects of osteology.

5-0 out of 5 stars Complete and concise course
This is quite possibly the most useful book I have ever bought. "Human Osteology" is clear and complete. The photos and diagrams are clear and complete. The text is clear and complete. I have used this book in three separate classes and it has proved invaluable to me all three times. ... Read more
