4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"This is in a league of its own, encompassing aspects of a textbook, an atlas, and a high yield quick-reference....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." -- Doody's Review Service
