Review quote

"This is an extraordinary concise reference for guidance in clinical infectious diseases, supported by definitions of basic terms and an overview of microbiology and antimicrobial pharmacology. It includes surveillance and management strategies for infection control. Although it does not include specific antibiotic doses, it is a handy pocket reference, offering reliable guidance for approaching a wide range of infectious diseases. Moreover, it would be perfect for test preparation for trainees." -- DOODY'S
