“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
