Format: Paperback
This books covers some basic aspects of microbiology and infectious disease and goes into considerable detail to describe the ways in which numerous pathogens can cause disease and how these infections can be treated. While this may be useful information for students in Medicine, it is not sufficient for students in Biological Sciences as basic microbiology is hardly discussed in this book. The book is also becoming outdated: for example, it lacks discussion on microbial genome sequencing.

our lectures recommended this (much because one of our lectures is the author, cary engleberg). it's a very accessible read with short chapters highlighting disease mechanism and process. i highly recommend it as an overview book. great accompanist for a first year medical infectious disease course.

Bought for medical school. Not a bad book, but better for reference during the year rather than primary text. I would recommend the "Made Ridiculously Simple" series for microbiology with this as a secondary reference.

This book is easy to read. It has up to date information, has good graphics and I strongly recommend it to medical students and health professionals who want to update their grasp of pathological mechanisms of infectious diseases.
