Concise and clinically relevant, Sherris Medical Microbiology is more than just an introductory text. It harbours abundant information that will interest anyone with a career in healthcare. The book paid total tribute to all aspects of pathogenic bacteriology, mycology, virology, parasitology, and immunology. Simple and clear explanations were used throughout.However, at this level, one would be disappointed that Sherris has lost touch with being up-to-date. As a result, the excellent (4th edition of) Medical Microbiology by Murray, et al, has relegated Sherris' efforts to that of a second fiddle. It offers a better value for money; and boasts of the most up-to-date information currently on sale.

Read this book first!

I've tried many other books on microbiology and on infectious diseases which cover bacteria and virology. This book by far exceeds those. It is taught in a clear manner for the beginner student. But this book has a wealth of information for more advanced students to learn from. The book comes complete with annoted notes on the sides of the pages, giving you basic notes on what the paragraph is discusses, excellent for quick reviewing! This is by far the best microbiology book I have encountered when faced with exactly what I want to learn about - bacteriology, virology, parasitiology and concepts of immunology. It also covers the strains of viruses and bacteria - as well as other parasites that can bring about [infectious] disease. I've read other books of this type which cost almost double this book and haven't gotten anything close to what can be delivered from this book. I highly recommend this book to anyone with an interest of bacteriology, virology or infectious diseases. Whether you're a student of just someone with an interest in learning more about these subjects.
