This book will not help any newbie with biology. It is a historical review of various aspects of biology, written for those with a graduate school understanding of the subject. The author persists in using terminology only the very educated would know.

It has a few interesting insights, but not made for those who are trying to just understand the subject. More like a historical summary for a journal.
