 “A refreshing way to talk about physics (from descriptive to cal-based, from serious PHYS to interesting facts of life science)."
--Chuji Wang, Mississippi State University

“This is the best bio-app text I have seen.”
--Mark James, Northern Arizona University

“The detailed development of biological examples sets the book apart.”
--Carey Witkov, Broward College

“This [the Worked Example] is a nice introduction/review to basic calculus concepts. I appreciate it most when the author uses examples to reinforce the mathematics—not common in modern textbooks.”
--Mark Lattery, University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh

“I think the estimations problems are a wonderful idea and I may start using them in my classes.”
--Robert Mania, Kentucky State University

“I didn’t think of this book as physics with a life science bent. It is an Engineering physics book with plenty of applications in life science and other areas.  It is appropriate for all engineers.”
--Bereket Berhane, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

“This calculus based book can be used for teaching students with no calculus background.”
--Prem Chapagain, Florida International University

“I find this book easier to read than others, the language is more informal, yet it tells you everything.”
--Stiliana Savin, Barnard College
