"[Microbiology: A Clinical Approach] is true to its title, providing an up-to-date overview of infection from a clinical perspective....The main advantage of this book is that it is organized by systems: linking the clinical syndrome to its microbiology....The easily navigable chapters are enriched with outstanding illustrations and informative tables, and finished with salient summary points. In fact, the learning aids presented far exceeded my expectations for a textbook....The opening pages of the book contain a wealth of guidance on how to use these features, with further complimentary resources available on-line and in the form of accompanying software for those who wish to apply for them....it is an interesting book that has been well researched and the format makes it fun to read. In addition, it is relatively inexpensive as far medical textbooks go and thus it would be appropriate for individual purchase as well as library collections."
