Editorial Reviews

Review

This is an excellent resource for those diagnosing parasitic infections and those teaching parasitology to medical students or medical technologists. The variety of color photographs gives the reader a truer perspective of what the organism may look like under the microscope. This is a comprehensive guide to human parasites and artifacts that resemble organisms. Other books on parasitology limit their contents to wordy explanations and black-and-white illustrations, whereas this atlas demonstrates that one color picture is worth one thousand words. --Roberta Carey, PhD -- Doody's Review Service ©

Format: Hardcover
The biggest obstacle in the way of this beautifully illustrated atlas is its rather unreasonable price-tag. Its publisher, (and authors), did overlook the fact that there are lots of moderately priced equivalents out there in the market.
Nevertheless, anyone who goes ahead and purchase this atlas will appreciate its versatile accomplishments. It is very practical, and included high resolution photographs and micrographs.
"Atlas of Human Parasitology" has a unique organization, which enabled it to provide comprehensive laboratory information. Every specimen it portrayed was labelled and analyzed in details. There is complementary taxonomical description in each case. This is a well-compiled atlas, but I still maintain that its price is a great barrier.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Gary Smith on September 8, 2001
Format: Hardcover
I use this book on the bench in the microbiology department and I find the clarity and amount of photos extreemly useful. The other good features are the lifecycles and the methods present within the book. The book is sturdily bound and printed on high quality paper I would recomend this book to any laboratory, or person interested in parasitology.

I am a Clinical Science Student and this atlas was highly useful during my clinical parasitology rotation. I would recommend this text for anyone needing detailed photos and descriptions of common parasites. Only downfall is the high price tag, though it is very useful and worth the money in the long run.
