From the Back Cover:

“A superb introductory text for medical students ... a strong job of laying out the fundamental mechanisms of bacterial infection and host response. The vast array of prokaryotic and eukaryotic infecting organisms can be baffling to the novice practitioner, and this text serves as a good foundation on which to build more specialized insight. ”

“I highly recommend this text to anyone with an interest in bacteriology, virology, or infectious diseases, whether you’re a student or just someone with an interest in learning more about these subjects.”
