From science to scientific literacy.Discover Biology makes biology relevant to students’ everyday lives by helping them overcome the big challenges they face—their own apathy about science and the overwhelming amount of information they have to learn in the course. Discover Biology was developed to overcome these challenges and achieve the ultimate goal of every non-majors course—to make students more scientifically literate citizens and voters.

First of all, this is incredibly misleading. This isn't the full textbook, just a collection of the core topics. You have to really be an eagle-eyed shopper to pick out that thin green "Core Topics" bar at the top. You're wasting your money if you're getting this for college, you need to buy the full version, not this. Secondly, they ship at least half of these as non-bound, hole-punched stacks of paper. Absolutely unacceptable. I was lucky enough to be shipped a bound version, but my friend who ordered the SAME EXACT PRODUCT just got a stack of hole-punched papers.

I received the book in the mail, the Biology book was unbound, no cover, together by three loose rings. The front and back pages are messed up and crinkled. The description read paper back and in Like New Condition. I paid $70.00 for the book, I thought the book was in decent condition. I would never buy from this person again I was deceived and ripped off.

The book is literally falling apart. As I'm reading pages they are falling out.... Text books are expensive and this book isn't even worth 5$ in its current condition.

All pages of the book are clear and clean. The book is the correct one for my course.

This "textbook" was not bound. It was shipped to me with holed punched pages which was not part of the description for this product. The only reason I would give this any stars is because the info I needed was all there and in order but for $53 this was not at all what I expected to get.
Plain and simple.

worst book buy

Worst product I've every bought off Amazon. The book didn't even have a binding. It said it was paperback, but it was a three ring binder book.... So ridiculous!

You need it for school

So, you're looking at this book because your class just assigned it as a required text. Aside from being much more affordable than many other Biology options, it's eligible to be bought back by Amazon. I just sold mine back for $50 which is about what I would have sold it for locally if I could find a buyer (and I'm just too lazy to do that). You have to buy it, so buy it and sell it back.
