We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Text by Dan Green. A variety of biological concepts, primarily emphasizing cutting edge biotechnology, are conceptualized as anthropomorphized anime-like critters and presented in a field guide like format where definitions of each term emphasize unusual characteristics more than conventional scientific classifications. Oddly, both things and processes are turned into individual characters: "Superbug," "Genome," "Face Transplant," and "Polymerase Chain Reaction" get the same treatment. Glos., ind.
