Great Handbook

This book is a great handbook to get easy and quick access to essential information regarding the various viruses, bacteria, fungi and protozoa. I especially like the colored images as well as the way in which the book is written. Information is precise and pretty upto date. The paperback copy is completely affordable and absolutely worth buying.

Great Book!

I got this book for my husband who is studying virology. He loves it! The pictures are great, as are the descriptions! Its now his favorite non-scifi book. Overall, if you are at all interested in microbiology and infectious things, you will love this book!

I have been looking for an informative book on microbes for a long time, and I've found exactly what I've been looking for with this book. The information in Microterrors is organized and easy to understand, especially for someone that's interested in finding out more about the germs they hear about everyday on the news. This book makes you want to learn more about these deadly terrors, and at the same time lock yourself away in a clean room. Definitely a must read for anyone interested in the genre.

The telescope's invention and advancement let the human world in on how tiny organisms looked, and helped to reveal pathogens and their dangers: now the images of these disease-producing microbes, from viruses to fungi, are accessible to non-scientists in MICROTERRORS, a gathering of microscope color images paired with a quick reference and health facts. Clinical notes on treatment and prevention round out a unique approach.
