From the reviews:
"This comprehensive book deals with various experimental and clinical aspects of the role of mitochondria in physiology and pathophysiology. ... editor has done a nice job of assembling a panel of researchers, several of whom are experts, in different aspects of mitochondria biology. ... chapters are reasonably well referenced and of appropriate length, and many contain helpful illustrations. The index is complete, which makes the text easy to navigate. This is a very good book that is appropriate for physicians, pharmacologists, and life science experts." (John D. Robertson, Doody's Review Service, August, 2008)
