I bought this book to assist me with my transition into the field of genomics research and molecular biology. I searched around for quite a while looking for a fairly deep and up-to-date books, and I think this book has more than fulfilled this purpose for me. I've been to Cold Springs Harbor Labs (this book is a CSHL Press publication). CSHL's history and place in this field of science is undisputed. Of the authors, I'm taking an online ed.s class from Professor Stephen Bell (MIT), and it is likewise excellent.
What you should expect to find with this book is a text book format, with a quiz after each chapter, and the even questions have answers in the back. The book can easily be read front to back, but is also a very good reference book, with full index.
I've found the book to be very accurate and up-to-date, at least to my level of knowledge. There are very few typographical errors. The figures are plentiful, presented in context, and provide a very good graphical representation of the text they accompany.
I bought the loose leaf version so I could carry around just a few chapters as I read them. This book is nearly 900 pages.
