    Mm, it really depends which areas of Biology most interest you. If you are at all interested in molecular biology, I woukd rwcommend Alberts et al 'Molecular Biology of the Cell' and Strasser et al 'Biochemistry'. Campbell-Reece 'Biology' is a good introductory text and its contents broad. Wolpert's 'Principles of Developmental Biology' is a good introductory text for understanding how the genome and environment act in concert during the development of an organism to give rise to different phenotypes in a temporal manner. 'Genes' Lewin B. is a must for understanding genetics. This is sufficient stating material, I think! Best wishes, Tri

    I have a few suggestions:

    *Color Atlas of Anatomy: A Photographic Study of the Human Body by Rohen is an interesting and informative book on anatomy - pretty much exactly what the title suggests, so it's not for the faint of heart.
    *The Dragons of Eden by Carl Sagan deals with evolutionary biology.
    *The Extended Phenotype by Richard Dawkins on genetics.
    *The Elements: A Visual Exploration of Every Known Atom in the Universe. Another "picture" book. I know it's chemistry instead of biology, but still very interesting, funny, and and does discuss applications of the elements which include biology.

    Hope this helps. Enjoy!
