Fields' Virology is a crucial resource for the virology community, and for physicians and medical students who treat infectious diseases. Fields' remains the most trusted text book on human medical virology, and it had not been updated since the last edition was published in 2007. Modern biology moves fast. The advent of new technologies, such as massively parallel nucleic acid sequencing, not to mention discoveries in related fields such as molecular & cell biology and immunology, which have both led to and been cross-pollenated by progress in virology, have resulted in huge advances. Not to mention that virologists carrying o "classical" approaches from the 1990's have also made some illuminating findings since 2007. As such, six years is an eternity, so the 6th Edition was eagerly anticipated, and long overdue. The book comes in two volumes and covers basic science of viral replication, the clinical aspects of how viruses cause disease, and the epidemiology to explain how these pathogens spread through populations. The first volume includes chapters with general information on topics such as the history of virology, vaccines, antiviral drugs, the innate immune system, how viruses enter cells, and so on. In the later part of the first volume and all of the second, the specific biology of the major families of viruses that cause disease in humans are covered.

This book must be reviewed on at least three fronts, and a fourth aspect that should be addressed is the Kindle / Google Play e-book version:
1) How good a job did the publisher do getting the product out as advertised?
2) How did the Editors-in-Chief perform their job of "herding cats" in terms of choosing appropriate authors and holding them to high standards?

The new edition of the Fields Virology is a very good and useful book because of a lot of refreshed information about virus families, its genomes, proteins, life cycle, etc. And I will definitely use it in the renewing of my virology lecture course. The only shortage is that it is too small amount of available illustrations in the electronic format. F

The new 6th edition of the recognized textbook is the reference book for everybody interested, and engaged in virology.
It will be more practical for citing if the Kindle book has the same page numbering as it in the hard copy.
