Review:

"The strength of this atlas is in its presentation of colourful clear illustrations of symptoms resulting from infection, as well as laboratory preparations, electron micrographs, scan images, and radiographs. These are particularly useful for the rarer and unusual conditions...a useful user-friendly aide for the diagnosis of infectious diseases." Hemda Garelick, Middlesex University, Microbiology Today, February 2004
is a small book, but it is packed full of information. It is easy to navigate your way around the different sections because of the structure - it is divided into bacterial, fungal, viral, protozoal and miscellaneous conditions. The diseases are then listed alphabetically within the relevant section.
The structure makes it a very useful reference book because it is so easy to find out about an individual condition and get a good and concise overview of it." 3rd Year Medical Student, St George's Medical School, London, April 2004
is indeed a good little "pocket-book" which makes Microbiology an easier exam to pass and furthermore makes you better at distinguishing between the diseases caused by the many micro organisms." Danish Medical Student, July 2004
