4.0 out of 5 stars Control of Communicable Diseases Manual March 6, 2009
Format:Paperback
The 19th edition continues and builds on the traditions of this valuable public health practitioner's vade mecum. It is comprehensive but concise and up to date. I liked the outbreak map on the back cover.

If you're taking HS370 EPI, you can skip this text. It's really only needed for field workers (epidemiologists). A good guide for legit workers, not really needed for students
