I learned a hell of a lot more from this text than my professor. It was better written than I expected, it's as up to date as you can expect a textbook to be, and the pictures/diagrams are good. And most importantly, IDENTICAL to the hardback, but cheaper.

This book does an excellent job of going into depth about the topics covered in my class. Several figures give more details than in previous editions. One drawback is that this edition does not have the essays that were in the older edition. Those essays were extremely helpful for making connections for class. Also, this edition is extremely expensive however,amazon was much cheaper than my local bookstore.

Good book that does a good job explaining the various disgusting things that live in and around us on a daily basis. The book sometimes got too detailed for me on certain subjects but overall it was a good book and helpful. Micro can be hard but this book was able to talk about things in an understandable way.

Probably one of the best microbiology books. Easy and at the same time complete of every information you would need. Its price is even lower corresponding on what you will find inside. Perfect for bachelor and even master students!

I learned a lot from this book and it actually made the reading quite enjoyable unlike some text books that are hard to understand and very badly presented. It was very good written and very up to date.

This is a good read for upper level microbiology. The book is well organized, straight forward, and explains the content well. A useful resource for anyone who teaches upper level science courses.

Exactly what I needed. The book came in a timely manner. So much easier to rent then buy, especially when you know for sure it would only collect dust after the class is over. Thanks!
