This comprehensive new Ninth Edition explores the major viral, bacterial, fungal, and parasitic human diseases, including patient care, and how the body protects itself from pathogens and infectious diseases.

-- "I especially liked the tables - they're good summaries of important facts about the diseases, the causative agents and sometimes the treatment modalities. The anatomy drawings are very good -- and again serve as a good reference for other courses. I like the artwork depicting infectious disease and immunizations and illness in general that are the book. Sometimes these are the things a student will remember!" -- "Thus length does matter. Too much information leads to overwhelming students as much as too little information stupefies them. I believe that your author has hit a happy medium." -- "Although I would recommend that the text be covered in its numbered sequence, the book is written so that each individual instructor (orstudent for that matter) can adjust the order of the material."
