You won't just receive a textbook with The Living World. We provide a wealth of presentation tools including textbook images in a variety of formats, Power Point outlines, and animations as well as online laboratories, activities and tutorials for students to help make teaching a little easier, and learning a lot more fun.Dr. George Johnson writes in an informal, friendly way, to engage as well as to teach. At every stage, students learn "how things work and why things happen the way they do." The emphasis is placed on telling a story rather than merely naming parts or giving definitions.

I absolutely love McGraw-Hill and this book. The book is easy to follow and educational at the same time.

Cutting edge biological concepts delivered with a greater emphasis on evolution and a logical use of analogies. I currently teach two lower level science courses with this book. I absolutely love McGraw-Hill and this book. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 13 years ago. This book is very detailed and at the same time easy to read.

Other readers will always be interested in your opinion of the books you've read. Whether you've loved the book or not, if you give your honest and detailed thoughts then people will find new books that are right for them.

Dr George B. Johnson (born 11 June 1942, Newport News, Virginia) is a science educator who for many years has written a weekly column "On Science" in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. For over 30 years he was a biology professor at Washington University and a genetics professor at their school of medicine. He has authored 44 scientific papers and ten high school and college widely used biology texts. Over 3 million students have learned biology from these texts.

The book begins with a survey of the 60-million year evolutionary history of the proboscideans emphasizing the role of climate and vegetation change in giving rise to a bewildering array of species, but also discussing the possible role of humans in the late Pleistocene extinction of mastodons and mammoths.

Talk about The Living World

I homeschool two middle school kids. I use this text (for myself... not the kids) to supplement the middle school Life Science text. The pictures and diagrams are beautiful. It feels as if the author is talking to the reader... really trying to communicate meaning. He also attempts to make many points through analogy... trying his best to help one understand complicated topics. I find them (the analogies) mostly helpful. For a guy 25 years removed from college, who worked in business (not science) his whole life, this is perfectly suited for my needs.

The only con I have is that the pages are really, really thin. It is too easy to tear them (e.g. just turning a page is a delicate operation).
This is a really interesting book about biology. I really enjoyed reading this book and learned a lot about biology in the process.

This book is really well written and it flows smoothly. It is very easy to follow. The concepts, facts and theories in this book were explained thoroughly and with great details. The concepts are really easy to understand.

I am very happy with this purchase and would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about biology.
Rated high because I was able to rent it for my class instead of having to buy it new or used. The book has seen better days, but I imagine it's probably seen a few semesters. Some stains and cracks on the binding, but the book is still very much useable.

The content in the book is laid out well and diagrams are easy to read.
The text is in great shape! Just what we need for the Hi-Q references!
Very informative. I'm an art studio major and had to take a science course. This book was interesting. Great pictures (information)
It's a textbook so I feel it was way overpriced, lol. The college life struggle. . .
Rented book and was just like my own book. It was exactly what i needed for my class. Then after the class was done did not have to worry about getting ripped off with buy back or looking at a book that I no longer needed collecting dust.
So happy! Saved $200 by renting this book instead. It came quickly and was the exact one I needed. Yayyyy!
i need this book for my college biology class. at my school they sell it for $167... but here on amazon i bought it for about $8. totally worth it. sure the corners are a little beat up, but it arrived right on time and i have no complaints. and some of the important parts of the book are even underlined by the previous owner. which is always a plus! lol
