About this book

From New York Times bestselling author Larry Gonick and Davidson College biology professor David Wessner comes this comprehensive and humorous cartoon guide to topics in biology.

Did you faint when your middle school science teacher asked you to dissect a frog? Do you think DNA stands for "Don't Know the Answer"? Do you still cling to the belief that osmosis was the name of Ozzy Osbourne's last tour? If you said yes to any of these questions – or even if you didn't – then you need The Cartoon Guide to Biology.

This is a hilarious and informative handbook to the science of life. From the inner workings of the cell, to the magic of gene expression, to the Krebs and Calvin cycles, to sexual and asexual reproduction, The Cartoon Guide to Biology uses simple, clear, humorous illustrations to make biology's most complex concepts understandable and entertaining. Whether you're peering into the microscope for the first time or brushing up after decades of de-evolution, this book has you covered.
