Editorial Reviews

"This is in a league of its own, encompassing aspects of a textbook, an atlas, and a high yield quick-reference book....It has enough detail to refresh the reader's background knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and microbiology, yet it emphasizes the relationship between microorganisms and the clinical manifestation of disease. For medical students and residents looking for a book that emphasizes the clinical presentation and treatment of human pathogens, this is highly recommended. Overall, this is a beautifully bound workbook-style text, with high-gloss pages and well oriented color pictures, tables, and diagrams. This is the book that will help new medical practitioners to see the forest for the trees of infectious disease. 4 Stars!"--Doody's Review Service
