When I was in college biology, my teacher assigned a really fun book that taught me more about biology than any other book or class has done. Unfortunately, I cannot recall the name of the book. It is a fiction book about a college professor who teaches biology using really funny stories. For example, he rose his motorcycle to class and used that to explain how mitochondria are the internal combustion engine of a cell.
The cover was black and white with cartoon-ish drawings on both the cover and inside. Does this sound familiar at all? To anyone? All help is appreciated!
