Designed for use by medical students during their course in the subject, these two texts differ in every other respect. Basic Biochemistry is a short book, well written, and covers almost all of what might be regarded as mammalian biochemistry. Topics such as photosynthesis have been omitted. Inevitably, in a book of this type, some topics are treated sketchily and the material in some areas is sadly out of date. For example, the biosynthesis of the fatty acids is covered in two short paragraphs and no mention is made of the role of carbon dioxide, biotin, or malonyl coenzyme A.
