Thanks! The second edition has the preview on the Amazon too:

Looks worth the money, based on the pictures. However, as I browse through the text, the tone of the explanations seems to be a little casual, and the book more concentrating on "counting" than explaining the details presented with the pictures?

Otherwise it seems to be "what you get when a physicist gets to write about cells," is my impression right? It seems that Lodish and Alberts are better starts to learn the biological aspects?

For the HN audience, Physical Biology of the Cell may also be another useful perspective/introduction.
