From the reviews:
"This book is designed to be `a comprehensive resource of information on antimicrobial drug resistance.' ... This will become a standard reference for clinicians, researchers, pharmacists, and clinical laboratories. ... This should also be required reading for all infectious disease clinicians and clinical microbiologists training in fellowships. This knowledge could lead to more prudent antimicrobial prescribing and may also lead to new ways of treating resistant microbes." (Rebecca T. Horvat, Doody's Review Service, December, 2009)
"I am aware of no other books that have sought to address this topic so extensively. ... The information is presented clearly and the style is very readable, which will encourage the reader to `dip in' regularly. ... In my view it should be found in any institutional or departmental library that has medical microbiology or antibiotics coverage. ... The editors and the panel of 175 international experts who contributed to Antimicrobial Drug Resistance are to be commended on their impressive achievements." (Neil Woodford, Journal of Epidemiology & Infection, Vol. 138, November, 2009)
"Antimicrobial drug resistance represents a hot topic for both experimental and clinical researchers. This two-volume set provides a global, up-to-date, overview of the mechanisms used by microbes to acquire resistance against a drug. ... a valuable handbook for microbiologists, virologists, parasitologists, and medicinal chemists. ... mainly directed to epidemiologists, public health authorities, clinicians, and medical students. ... should be considered a must for researchers involved in all aspects of antimicrobial drug investigation and for all students attracted to starting a career in the field." (Jose M. Padron, ChemBioChem, Vol. 5, 2010)
