We Should All Congratulate Professor Hobbie For This Excellent Text

Peter Kahn reviewed the third edition of Intermediate Physics for Medicine and Biology in the American Journal of Physics (volume 67, Pages 457–458, 1999). He wrote:
As a professor of physics I am upset that our biology students have such brief and superficial exposure to physics and mathematics, and that, at the same time, our physics students go through a curriculum that ignores the important role that biology is playing in modern science. We should all congratulate Professor Hobbie for this excellent text. Now it is up to us to initiate the dialogue that builds on this solid foundation.
