User’s Review:

Overall, this is a fine text, current, and concise, a useful reference that truly complements the more traditional textbooks of microbiology…This volume will find a place on many physicians bookshelves …I hope that Dr. Brachman, his colleagues…will continue Bacterial Infections in Humans and its companion Viral Infections in Humansfor many editions to come.’ Journal of American Medical Association, 281:23

This book provides a focused appraisal of selected bacterial infections, detailing such timely subjects as healthcare-associated infections and organisms threatened in bioterrorism. … It is designed for physicians and scientists who encounter bacterial infections, including clinicians, microbiologists, immunologists, and researchers, as well as students training in the healthcare professions. … Each chapter is liberally appointed with up-to-date references and suggested readings. … This is an admirable update. It remains a succinct, useful, and practical reference for the bacterial pathogens delineated in the book.” (John S. Czachor, Doody’s Review Service, September, 2009)
