Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello everyone,

I've been trying to find an introductory textbook that really introduces biochemistry with a very basic approach. As part of my first year medical courses, I will need to take a few weeks of biochemistry and the textbook that has been recommended is Lodish et al. Molecular Cell Biology As good as this book is, I'm looking for something even simpler to really understand the core concepts as if it were being explained to a child.

I apologise if this request is a bit annoying but any help would be very highly appreciated!

Hi, pinball1970. Thank you for your reply. I should have mentioned it in my initial post but I didn’t find the dummies book great. So you have any suggestions, perhaps?
