One of the best books for Biochemistry

Dr. Rafi has a unique narrative style. The way he combines Biochemistry with history, facts and fun is quite marvellous. I really enjoyed reading it. Not only good for exams, but also can be read by anyone. It roots you to a spot. If you start, you'll want to go on and on.

My advice, don't read it like a textbook. Read it like a story. You'll love it.
