Full chapters are devoted to compartmental problems, regulation and oscillation of feedback control systems, numerical methods, diffusion processes, blood flow measurements, curve fitting, and the use of tracers. Unlike most mathematical texts, this book avoids engineering terminology since it is often unfamiliar to biologists. A problem section is included at the end of each chapter, with problems ranging from relatively simple to fairly challenging. Fully worked-out solutions are included for some of the problems.
This new fourth edition includes an updated preface and an appendix with sample programs.

By William F. Simon
William F. Simon's The Work is an insightful story of the life of an alcoholic as he struggles with his addiction while searching for something to believe in. He shares anecdotes of his life growing up, and how he thinks his addiction came about. The events are not outlandish and could happen to anyone, though, possibly with different results.
At one point, the author becomes aware of something known as the 'Law of Attraction,' the premise of which is to ask, believe, and receive. He proceeds to describe the exact process, including the forming of string vibrations (thought energy) to be sent to the Universe, with the belief that the Universe will answer by providing that which is desired. He also shows a likeness to this same premise from the Bible, wherein you ask the Heavenly Father through prayer, believe, and receive with gratitude to God.
Whether you are 'religious' or simply 'spiritual' you will be able to see how these practices can affect lives, particularly those suffering from substance abuse addictions.
