Good book on parasites.

Apparently this is one of the more comprehensive texts on parasites out there, our professor strongly recommended it. I think it is useful, as it contains a lot of information and is organized fairly logically. However, note that some of the information is not 100% up-to-date (for example, better images of parasite life cycles may be found on the CDC website) and it is a LOT of info that is just sort of thrown at you - sometimes hard to absorb. That said, it pretty much tells you everything you need to know about parasites (sometimes more than you need) and, given that it's intended as a textbook, is really not bad. Plus a lot of this information is not very easily available on the internet so you need a book.

Great book for someone studying parasitology or tropical medicine

Bought this book for my helminthology class because I saw that the instructor referred to it. Great acquisition. I also recommend Despommier's 4th edition Parasitic Diseases.

i love this book!

This parasitology textbook is the highlight of my second year in medical school. Most of my classmates do not rely on this book as their study tool, but to me, it is everything that will help me get through my parasitology course. The details regarding pathological symptoms, treatment and diagnostic methods are very clear and easy-to-read. A must for medical students taking parasitology!
