From the reviews:
"The serious nature of coronaviruses became well known with the discovery of the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) virus which spread rapidly with life-threatening consequences in humans. ... this book describes the laboratory techniques used to study them. ... Scientists and students working in virology laboratories and, specifically, laboratories working with coronaviruses are the intended audience. ... each chapter contains a copious amount of detailed information as well as specific notes with technical advice. This is a valuable resource for scientists working with coronaviruses." (Rebecca T. Horvat, Doody's Review Service, November, 2008)
"This is volume 454 in the series Methods in Molecular Biology. ... if you work on coronaviruses, or want to enter the field, this is a must-have book at an affordable price." (Stuart Siddell, Microbiology Today, February, 2009)
