Overview

This is an excellent resource devoted to microbiology as it relates to health related professions. The text includes a clinical focus and concise presentation of information. It assumes no previous knowledge of biology or chemistry. The book features learning objectives, chapter outlines, study questions, and case studies to enforce learning and retention. It also contains an appendix full of prefixes, roots and suffixes used in microbiology.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ann H. McDonald, PhD (Concordia University of Wisconsin)
Description: The authors of this book introduce allied health science majors to the study of microorganisms that cause disease. Descriptions of laboratory studies are minimized in an effort to focus on providing the student with a very basic understanding of microbiology.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a basic text for nonscience majors entering an allied health science field. The number of allied health fields are increasing, as is the need for trained personnel. Authors who can target students who have had no prior courses in science are required. Therefore, these authors' objectives are worthy and there is a definite need for texts like these.
Audience: The target audience is undergraduates or students in technical colleges pursuing associate degrees who have not taken any college-level science courses. The authors have considerable experience teaching undergraduate microbiology and have written this text at an appropriate level for nonscience majors.
Features: This is a classic introduction to the broad range of topics covered in the majority of microbiology texts with an emphasis on microorganisms of clinical importance. Disease mechanisms are presented in broad terms with little emphasis on laboratory identification. The strengths are clear explanations of basic microbiology principles (i.e., observation and structure of microbial cells), classification of microorganisms, and infectious disease signs and symptoms.
Assessment: This textbook will be most appropriate for students working toward associate degrees in allied health sciences. The purpose is to clarify and simplify the principles of microbiology while providing the student with a fundamental understanding of how microorganisms cause disease in humans. The authors distinguish this book from other texts by their nonexperimental approach. This textbook would not be appropriate for students preparing for careers in laboratory science.
