Review quote

Praise for previous editions:

"An excellent virological text for students. It is recommended in many university undergraduate courses for good reason. It is well written in an accessible style... well illustrated...I suspect the self assessment questions will be usefully plundered by those setting examinations."
- Trends in Genetics
"Excellent.. The writing flows easily with good practical examples... an attractive, up-to-date book and is an excellent buy that I can strongly recommend."
- Society for General Microbiology Quarterly
"More suitable for an undergraduate class than any other text I have recently seen... readable and undergraduate-friendly, and it fills a definite niche."
- American Society for Microbiology News
"Compact... and realistically priced... Presents(s) molecular virology to an undergraduate audience is an easily digestible form."
- Trends in Microbiology
