Cartoon Guide to Biology
Did you faint when your middle school science teacher asked you to dissect a frog? Do you think DNA stands for Dont Know the Answer? Do you still cling to the belief that osmosis was the name of Ozzy Osbournes last tour? If you said yes to any of these questions (or even if you didnt) then you need The Cartoon Guide to Biology.
The latest from New York Times best selling author Larry Gonick (writing with Davidson College biology professor David Wessner) is a hilarious and informative handbook to the science of life. From the inner workings of the cell, to the magic of gene expression, to the Krebs and Calvin cycles, to sexual and asexual reproduction, The Cartoon Guide to Biology uses simple, clear, humorous illustrations to make biologys most complex concepts understandable and entertaining. Whether youre peering into the microscope for the first time or brushing up after decades of de-evolution, this book has you covered.
