Book Review: Further understanding of the human machine. The road to bioengineering

Wald, Alvin

This is a book review of:
Further understanding of the human machine. The road to bioengineering
Max E. Valentinuzzi (editor)
Series on bioengineering and biomedical engineering, volume 7.
Singapore/New Jersey: World Scientific Publishing Co. Pte. Ltd.
pp. xxxi+546. ISBN 9789813147256.

In this review I present a brief overview of the book's contents along with my own opinions of its strengths and weaknesses.This volume is and is not both a textbook and a reference source. It is a follow-up or sequel to Professor Valentinuzzi’s 2004 book in this same series (volume 4) “understanding the human machine: a primer to bioengineering.” The current work revises, expands, and extrapolates this earlier incarnation.
