"This very readable book is a refreshing change from most books onparasitology. The authors provide a wonderful review of currentresearch efforts and present it in a way to provide readers withuseable information. They also delve into more futuristic ideas onparasite control by vaccination as well as genetic resistance andnutritional interactions." (Doody's, 23 September 2011)
"This is definitely a book for anyone who wants to know a lot ofdetail about gastrointestinal parasites of sheep and cattle, butnot for those after a quick and definitive guide to solving commonproblems encountered in veterinary practice." (The AustralianVeterinary Journal, January/February 2011)
