Kevin Ahern and Indira Rajagopal have published an electronic book aimed at helping students learn the basics of biochemistry in a fun and engaging format.  The book incorporates original songs, recordings, verses and links to over 100 video lectures.  

As its name implies, THE BOOK IS FREE.

Chris Upton + helpers's insight:

I looked at the iPad version.  It's very nicely laid out and content is super clear.

Virology: An Illustrated Colour Text

"This is a concise, highly accessible introduction to medical virology, incorporating essential basic principles as well as a systematic review of viruses and viral diseases. It pays particular attention to developments in anti-viral therapy that are becoming increasingly effective in modern medicine. It is an ideal textbook for the information-overloaded student and an invaluable everyday companion for the busy professional who needs a good understanding of the current state of medical virology.

In keeping with the highly successful format of other Illustrated Colour Texts, it presents the subject as a series of succinct 2 page ‘learning units’, using a superb collection of clear illustrations and clinical photographs, concise yet comprehensive text and key point boxes to aid quick access to information and examination preparation.

So whether you are a medical student, junior doctor, medical scientist, trainee in infectious diseases or student on another allied medical course, this book is here to make your life easier! It will also provide a very solid foundation for any who plan to delve deeper into this fascinating field."

 

It gives me great pleasure to be able to hype a book by colleagues from South Africa - and an eBook at that, given that it is available at a substantial discount for Kindle!  I shall be downloading it soonest.  Nice one, guys!
