This is an excellent textbook - but a caveat to users is that it is currently hosted by the NCBI in a "search only - no browsing" format. It's possible to read every page of the book, but a student has to navigate to each section by typing in a search term that brings up the section in question in a list of search results. I've done that very thing -- provided students with the keywords necessary to pull up and read, for example, all the sections in chapter 29 -- but it's an awkward setup.
Used in course? Yes

Thanks for your contribution but this material is only a table of contents or index book. Therefore isnĀ“t a Open Textbook. However original book is a great publication. I suggest change material type
