Emphasizes the metabolic pathways (carbohydrates, lipids, amino acids) and their diseases, for medical students and other health professionals. Includes a large color map of  “Biochemistry Land” (an amusement park in which clinical biochemistry can be visualized as a whole). Medical students often complain that their biochemistry courses do not focus on clinical relevance. This book, while not a reference book or a dissertation on all aspects of biochemistry, selects the most clinically relevant material that every clinician should know, and presents it in a way that enables the student to quickly see the subject as a conceptual whole. For biochemistry courses. Excellent USMLE Board Review.

Dr. Goldberg has published numerous papers on neuronal development and regeneration through research done at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, New York Medical College and the University of Miami. He is the author of the best-selling book, Clinical Neuroanatomy Made Ridiculously Simple, as well as the interactive computer program Neurologic Localization. As a coordinator of neuroanatomy education at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine for 25 years, his reputation is that of an educator who can simplify complex topics. He received the George Paff Most Outstanding Professor Teaching Award 11 times at the U of M and was invited to be the keynote speaker at the medical school graduation commencement at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis in 2004. He has also authored textbooks of Anatomy, Physiology, Biochemistry, Biostatistics, Neurology, Ophthalmology and Computer Programming, as well as many interactive computer programs on a variety of medical topics. His diverse background has bolstered his life-long interest in the Mind/ Body problem, for which he has published five previous books. Consciousness Made Ridiculously Simple is a distillation and advancement of his past books, in which he aims to resolve the mystery of the nature and origin of consciousness.
