[Hochachka’s] enthusiasm has led him to bring together a great diversity of material to make a coherent story. There is a point in everything he has written, and that is an unusual achievement for a work that is primarily about biochemistry, a subject prone to accumulation of disconnected facts…what really makes this book so fascinating [is that] he puts the biochemistry into the whole picture of the physiology and life-style of the animals.—R.D. Harkness, Nature

This is an excellent book, which contains both material and insights useful to anyone interested in anaerobic life forms.—Daniel R. Caldwell, Bioscience

Hochachka has performed his survey with guile…for the many who can’t see the wood for the trees it provides an unintimidating and readable technical account of some very important physiological and biochemical phenomena.—Peter J. Baron, New Scientist
