Format: Paperback
For the size of this book, the listed price is clearly on the high side. But if that wouldn't deter you, then, get ready to savour a delicious series of well-documented medical information.
This fully revised new edition of the "Tropical Medicine and Parasitology" maintained the tradition of providing succinct clinical information. Its principles, techniques and consistency makes it unique. The textbook is particularly useful for tracking down summarized topics.
However, it is very $$$ when compared to similar good texts.

Format: Paperback
This is my favorite book on tropical medicine. Half is well-written text and the other half is absorbing photos and informative illustrations. Each chapter gives a thorough description of the epidemiology and pathophysiology of a specific illness. The author also does an exceptional job describing important vectors and reservoirs. Contrary to previous posts, the price is extremely reasonable if you compare it to almost any other medical atlas.
