Review quote

"a beloved travel must-have for the intrepid wanderer" --Publishers Weekly"Picks for the best health books of 2009 [include] the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's guide. Sections address the risks of going overseas for medical care, health concerns when traveling with infants and children, and medical issues to consider with international adoptions." --Wall Street Journal"Every healthcare provider in the U.S. involved in travel medicine must have the latest edition of this book or prompt access to the online version, which has up-to-date recommendations and corrections on typographical errors in the print version." -- Carlos E. Figueroa Castro, MD (Boone Hospital Center), Doody's"This is an excellent review text for physicians and other health care professionals who see patients for pre-travel consultation."--Mayo Clinic Proceedings"Travel medicine practitioners in the U.S. are expected to have this book on their bookshelf (or have it bookmarked in their Internet browser if using the online version). As with previous editions, the book is conceived as a guide, not as a comprehensive textbook of travel medicine. With the emergence of new infections and travel regulations, this is an invaluable rapid reference for busy clinicians.... 5 Stars!" DOODY'S "There's a wealth of travel medical textbooks with overlapping content, but it's good to have one with the authority in the back when we give our recommendations. The Yellow Book from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is one such. [...] The Yellow Book is recommended for anyone involved in travel medicine and vaccination." -- G Hasle, The Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association
