Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Joseph R. Lentino, M.D.,Ph.D(Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine)
Description: This encyclopedic book on infectious diseases has been updated substantially since the 2004 edition, especially in the section devoted to HIV. Beautifully illustrated with high quality photographs and excellent tables and figures, the book is composed of 184 chapters and has 61 practice points of salient information on a wide array of infectious disease topics. This edition also includes access to a website with the fully searchable text as well as downloadable images and other resources.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a comprehensive review of infectious diseases in a single source. The editors/authors have succeeded in achieving this goal, with enough detail on a myriad of topics germane to the infectious disease community.
Audience: This will serve as an excellent reference for any infectious disease division and easily complements other works commonly in use. With its practice points and other practical clinical information, this book appears targeted at the level of an infectious disease fellow. The editors are internationally known authorities in the field.
Features: This is an outstanding book that covers both common and uncommon topics in infectious disease. I found information on infections that I have never encountered in 30 years of practice. It will be helpful to infectious disease specialists as well as nonspecialists around the world in terms of diagnosis, treatment, and epidemiology of unusual as well as common problems. Excellent glossy photos and tables/figures are informative at a quick glance even without reading the text. The only shortcoming from my perspective was not having the references in the print version — I found it time consuming and annoying to go online to access them.
Assessment: Now in its third edition, this book has clearly stood the test of time. It would be a wise investment as a companion to Mandell, Douglas, and Bennett's Principles and Practice of Infectious Diseases, 7th edition, Mandell et al. (Elsevier, 2010). With a hefty two volumes weighing almost nine pounds each, this book is not a comfortable read except at a desk, but it does include access to an online version.
From the Publisher
"This is an outstanding book that covers both common and uncommon topics in infectious disease. I found information on infections that I have never encountered in 30 years of practice. It will be helpful to infectious disease specialists as well as nonspecialists around the world in terms of diagnosis, treatment, and epidemiology of unusual as well as common problems. Excellent glossy photos and tables/figures are informative at a quick glance even without reading the text. Now in its third edition, this book has clearly stood the test of time." - Joseph R. Lentino, MD, PhD(Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine), Excerpts from Doody’s review service, Rating - 4 Stars!

"The third edition of this book was published in 2012, some 5 years after the 2nd edition. During those 5 years there have been many developments...It was evident the information in the book needed updating, hence the 3rd edition and its 2000 pages...The three editors have managed to get together just under 400 contributors from all over the world to update and expand the previous edition. They have really done an excellent job, enhanced by the way the book is presented."
