Listmania! IPMB

Intermediate Physics for Medicine and Biology: Listmania! IPMB

Amazon used to have a feature called Listmania! You could make a list of up to 40 books that was visible at Amazon's website. Ten years ago I created a Listmania! list related to Intermediate Physics for Medicine and Biology, reproduced below. Because the list is old, it does not include recent books (such as The Optics of Life) or books that I have discovered recently (such as The First Steps in Seeing). To learn about newer books, search this blog for posts labeled "book review." Amazon has discontinued Listmania!, but you can still find the lists if you look hard. I miss it.

If you are interested in what I read for pleasure, look here.

Enjoy!
