In efforts to cope with the expanding volume of medical knowledge, standard medical text books have been complemented by an ever increasing number of manuals, handbooks, and "pocket" volumes. The quality of these publications has ranged from dismal to excellent. Some have reached their objectives more satisfactorily than others. One recent publication, unique in some respects, is a welcome addition to the lot; this soft cover volume, Clinical Microbiology, numbering 242 pages and modestly priced at $11.75, is right on target.
Obviously this book is the work of a thoughtful clinician with a wide and thorough background in infectious diseases.
