Unlike other biology textbooks, Inquiry Into Life by Sylvia Mader focuses on how biology permeates the human experience, highlighting applications and not just listing information. Sylvia Mader successfully creates an engaging biology book that encourages students to be curious and thus learn about the study of life in a different way. Inquiry Into Life (ISBN 9780077280109) steers away from the memorization model and gives learners a fuller understanding of the interrelatedness of key concepts in biology. The book discusses (1) cell and plant biology, (2) maintenance of the human body, (3) integration and control of the human body, (4) continuance of the species, and (5) evolution and diversity. Each part is divided into several topics such as the molecules of the cell, membrane structure and function, the senses, DNA biology and technology, and control of gene expression and cancer. Students can also get full details on photosynthesis, human organization, the evolution of life, microbiology, and cellular respiration. This textbook is written for non-biology majors and is designed so as not to overwhelm entry-level readers. Already on its 13th edition, Inquiry Into Life features enhanced visuals and illustrations, making topics much easier to understand. The book has also undergone revisions to meet the changing needs of both students and instructors. Each chapter opens up with a vignette to encourage students to read on. There is also emphasis on human diseases and critical thinking. To help learners retain what they have read, end-of-chapter review, summaries, review questions, and self-test tools are provided.
