“This shortened version of what is considered the staple for instruction and practice in the field of infectious diseases features summaries of the 241 disease-oriented chapters from that book.the purpose is twofold: to serve as an introduction to the study of infectious diseases and to provide a more accessible source of information. Given that the main textbook is extensive and impractical to transport, the objective of this book is laudable.”
